Could someone tell if a manual transmission from a 2002 Jetta fit into a 2000 Golf? If not what has to be changed? Also is it best to use new bolts for the driveaxles?

Thanks

Is the Jetta a TDI? If so, direct bolt in.

The factory service manual says to use new bolts. I don't but I do use threadlocker, go around twice, and overtorque it by a few lbs without problem. This is not the right way. The reason why is that garages never replace the bolts and sometimes they loosen up, resulting in the axle coming off while driving!
