Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
My daughters beetle has a 5 speed manual trans. Will not go into reverse this morning, did last night. It seems tha the 1st gear is not working also. When you move the shifter to the left and push down for reverse, it seems to go into second. Also at the far right there seems to be a gear under the 5th space on the shifter. Any ideas?? I hope it isn't something major. Car is a 99 model w/110000 miles.
Behind the battery where the cables connect there is a part called a carrier 1J0711256...less than $35@ vw dealership...easy to install...remove breather...take bottom cable loose...put part on

There is a bracket that brakes under the hood. Follow the cables and it is by the battery
