Re: Can't figure out Trans switch '91 200


The 1991 Audi V8 with 5 speed used a version of the 016 transmission with
some modifications that was similar to the 016 used in the 1991 200TQ 20V

The "1991 Model Change" Factory Training booklet shows the 5 Speed tranny
for the V8 (With oil cooler/pump setup) and it also shows a switch mounted
at the rear of the transmission in the area you described. The switch is
used for the  "1st gear A/C compressor cutout" feature. The backup light
switch is shown above where the right side front axle/CV  comes out of the

The ETKA for the 1991 V8 shows this switch in Main Group 9, Sub Group 19,
Illustration 159-25, part number (10), Audi # 084-941-521, "Switch for
gearshift indicator", Comment field shows ( 1.gear)

Possibly the 1991 200TQ and 1991 V8 5 Speed shared the same rear trans
housing with switch.
