Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
I have no reverse gear, it just grinds. Is there an adjustment or a part that can be replaced to fix this problem?
Reverse gear often breaks a tooth in vw engines and breaks tooth on main shaft. unit clicks but can run for years like that then one day the broken tooth finds its way into destroying gearbox. Main shaft costs $400 plus. find good used box from the clunkers.

One of reverse gears inside the tranny is worn out apparently.This has to be looked at by a pro. trannys are pretty complicated and the person has to know what they are doing.The bad thing. it costs money. But it can be repaired.if you have the money. beware of them taking advantage of your problem. Keep a close eye on what they do or say. get estimates.
