Question about 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio
Somehow the brake is not engaging the knob on the gear shift to allow the grear shift to move out of park. it's very cold out and i thought the car wasn't warm enough but that doesn't seem to matter. help!
There is a cable which locks the shifter and its connected to the brake pedal. You can unclip the cable and try to pull it out like the brake pedal does. if this fails then you will need to remove the floor console to gain access to the other end so it can be replaced. for more info try this link http://forums.vwvortex.com/ there is a forum for the golf 3 platform look for a faq/diy
