Sounds like Robert dropped the tranny over the weekend and Audrey ran it over to Paradise to be rebuilt… Sounds like they may have it done by the end of the week!! That’s some turn around time!!! 😎
Again, thanks to Robert for taking care of my Favorite Daughter!!!!! 😎 The joy I see that Greta brings to Audreys life makes Greta a solid investment for me as a Dad…. 😎 😎

Make sure Audrey fills the trans with GL3 rated hypoid. It’s a little hard to find, but NAPA carries it. Most of the hypoids in Checker, Auto Zone, and other stores are GL4, which don’t have the Sulfer additives that VW trans need. I made that mistake, and it cost me a trailer ride home and a premeture transmission rebuild.

Thanks Ben!! I’ll relay that to Robert! And thank you dad for always helping me keep greta GREAT!! 🥰
Yeah, we met Robert on Shasta this year and have been running into him at other camping events since! I was just camping with Sarah and Robert in New Mexico at buses and balloons in fact 😁 I can’t possibly thank Robert enough, my dad is right Greta brings me SO MUCH JOY! And having her broken is devastating… BUT – I have been around the block with VWs enough to know she will be fixed and better than ever before I know it!! 🥳🥳🥳 I feel so lucky that I broke down in Southern California and not in the middle of nowhere…
I picked up my Tranny and took it to Paradise yesterday morning!! Scott told me that it might be done by Friday!! Wahoo!! By the way- I told Scott to call KCW when they get it opened up so he can tell JJ what’s up with it… he told me to tell Franz and Pat not to screen his call from JJ too 🤣
here’s the pile of trannys going out from paradise soon! They crank them out!
I’ll pick it back up for Robert when it’s done And take it to his house 😁👍🏻
also- Robert said he’s gonna tell everyone that I drove sprinter vans now 😅😭🙈John JonesModeratorOctober 29, 2021 at 9:04 amPost count: 10870

That must be the 2001 Denver Bug Inn.. 😎 Time fucking fly’s.. You don’t think it will ever pass when your young… but like the songs say.. One day you look back and 20 years have gotten away from ya…
Hope Greta is getting put back together this weekend… I bet Audrey can’t wait to drive her again!!!
