Re: VW Transmision ? (no Audi content)

There are obvious differences in the appearance and shape of the
4 and 5-speed boxes.  The 5-speed, if I remember correctly, has 
a longer "tailshaft" housing.  This means it sticks out further to the
left of the car.  I would say it is an adjustment problem.  The main
shift rod is clamped by a bolt at the end, something like an old one
piece muffler clamp.  Loosen here and rotate the rod.  I would
do in the following order:

Put trans. in reverse.
Loosen clamp.
mover shift lever to the left side of it's rang of motion.
Tighten clamp.
Should find 5th gear now.

Let me know.
