Besides the Auto Flywheel is diff obv from the 5spd so the teeth probably differnt distance etc... to be safe i would go with the 5spd starter... on VWs the Auto starter is much diff then the Manual and on almost all call I seen/ worked on they were diff
Starters are the same on E,I,O,U. Engines. Auto and Manual SAME STARTER!
It wouldnt bolt up because u forgot to push out the dow pins.
