The re-coding of the ECU from auto to manual? Yes. Very easy if a B5.5. I suspect that is not all you are asking about, though. If about the mechanics at all, you need to search or post (if you can't find your answer) a thread in the correct forum for your model.

Is it possible? If you prefer a manual transmission then you should have purchase one in the first place.
Well, I wish I would have thought of that! :sarc: These cars are getting harder to find in a manual. I bought mine 14 years ago and decided to swap to manual 4 years ago. I liked the auto at that point in time, but as it became a second car, I wanted a manual. It was relatively easy to do. Besides, I knew the maintenance history and it has been a good car to me. Going out to buy another car just to get a manual is a gamble. Will it be a good one, will it be a total disaster?

They did not sell mine in a manual when I bought it.
