Buy & check a 99' Jetta shop manual. I'm sure there is a parts list & exploded detailed parts illustration for a manual trans. The auto to manual trans swap is pretty straight fwd. The bell housing, flywheel, & clutch & throw-out bearing assembly PLUS hanging all the pedal assembly will be important. And don't forget you have to disconnect & plug off the old trans fluid lines to the radiator too. If you've never did this before a transmition shop is your best bet. Sell them your automatic trans too for a install discount.
