I couldn't make mine work with a Euro S2 01E, so I removed it.  Cut  the 
cables at the bottom the seat belt, pulled them through the fire wall.   Removed 
the passengers side bracket completely, removed the drivers side, trimed  the 
bracket, and left the brake line attached to it.
Removing the passenger side bracket gave me a lot more room to work under  
there.  Of course, putting the battery under the rear seat, helped.   Besides 
the bracket was in the way of the passenger side exhaust.  The  drivers side 
trimmed bracket works just fine with the drivers side  exhaust.

Hey  guys,

I'm wondering if any of you (Ben, maybe in particular) have  experience with
an O1e in a Coupe Quattro, with an S2 shift linkage. I've  got the engine,
subframe, tranny, and linkage installed, but the linkage is  hitting the
driver's side pro con 10 bracket, and won't get into the  5th/6th gear

Has anyone encountered this?

Has anyone  installed a european CGR O1e with S2 shift linkage into a  Coupe

We're thinking that maybe the pro con 10 bracket is  specific to the tranny,
and that the euro O1e bracket is smaller than the  US O1a bracket?

Any thoughts?

I'm trying to track down euro-ETKA  to compare part numbers for the brackets.
