haven't done a quattro (yet...) but I did my coupe GT and theory is same on
all g'boxes... yes to do the synchros you have to pull and then _completely_
dismantle the g'box...
was quite a cool feeling to have the entire g'box out and dismantled into
it's smallest component parts...
not too technical though, good to have access to a press of some sort for
getting the gears off and on...
it was my 1st major operation and it was all relatively painless, did it
with a Haynes manual and managed to adlib all the parts it glossed over...
they are not comprehensive manuals, but what is there was very useful....

good luck...

I like my high revs... but the car is not a daily driver and any time I get
in it it's WOT right through to redline...
