Ford Galaxy AWD
« on: December 03, 2018, 06:19:07 PM »
Hi guys!
After basically replacing everything on a 2001 Galaxy received as a gift, engine, all suspension, lots of interior stuff and others of which i don't care to think about right now, i moved to an area where i will most likely need awd. as far as i got it, all i need is a donor Sharan, which i can rob of everything starting from the haldex.
First question would be, are the gearboxes the same? cuz on the ETKA webside there appear to be two identically looking trannies.
Are there any other cars suitable? i fopund a very cheap Octavia mk1, would that fit the bill?

Hi! I looked into this a long time ago and yes, theoretically it's highly possible. The mount points are there for all the 4mo stuff but you'll need a new exhaust and fuel tank, ideal if you have the doner.

The gearboxes are different but I'm not sure how, they carry different part numbers and one looks to have an extra wiring connector. Other then that should be a fun project, let me know how you progress!

To be honest, you’re probably better off just spending some money on good tyres. I put Michelin cross climates on my Ford Focus and was happily driving around at normal speeds when so called off roaders like range rovers were gettting stuck on ice. If you’ll be driving over slippery mud and stuff then chains and suchlike might be the way to go. I think 4WD is mainly useful for really fast cars that wheelspin when they take off
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
