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.
mover shift lever to the left side of it's rang of motion.
Should find 5th gear now.
Let me know.
