SOURCE: What causes a SEAT AROSA

vw has problems like this due to tranny fluid getting to low, when oil is low tranny starts doing crazy things, on your model im not to sure but most of the newwer vw's require a lift to check the tranny oil level. from under the the car theres a plug on the tranny pan, this is where you fill it and check it. there are a few steps like make sure the engine is at operating remp and on level ground an then you go through the gears and let it sit with engine runnig and remove the plug and some oil should leak out, that is full, its a tube inside the pan and when the pan is full it gets to the height of the tube and inturn runs down the tube and out from the plug you removed,the oil should just dribble out if it runs out steady then allow it to drain until the flow is very slow, this would be due to overfilling it. good day.

SOURCE: ive replaced clutch and gear

1. replace your gear oil.
2. is this an automatic or manual transmission engine? if manual, adjust your clutch release a little higher than usual to let your clutch engange earlier.

That car has reported problems with the gearshift linkage, rather than the actual gearbox. There's certainly no harm in giving it an oil change though. The gearbox has a drain plug on the rear bottom edge, and a filler plug on the side of the casting about 1/2 way along and 1/2 way up. The correct level is the bottom of the filler hole when cold. It's a heck of a messy job though unless you have done it before.

Seat arosa, I just brought a seat arosa and it had a radio fittet but with no faceplate, does anyone know how to get the old radio out?

If you cannot figure it out you might be better off contacting a professional to do it. It is a very easy job for someone who is familiar with automotive audio devices.

Hyundai 2013 I30 gearbox 'SKLITCH' between 5th and 6th gear

It sounds like BS to me but what do I know. I'm only in this business for 40 years. What they did was put heavy oil in the gear box to try to mask the sound. That's why it is difficult to shift (stiff).

Alway ask for the old parts when a replacement is not visible after repairs!

I have a 98 BMW 328i with a manual 5-speed transmission. One day I get in the car and noticed it was hard to shift into gears the clutch felt good and car would drive normal just stiff to put into gears...

It could be typically due to one or two things:

1) The clutch plate is sticking on the gearbox splines due to build up of corrosion or lack of lubrication. May happen especially after long standing with no operation.

2) Gearbox oil is old and requires replacement.

3) Clutch operation requires adjustment or repair. Check clutch fluid or cable condition and operation.

How to fit a seat arosa automatic inhibitor????

Yes i have worked on these cars but never seen a auto version as yet ?if you get a new one then you will see where it has to fit as some are inside the gearbox and some on the linkage but wherever it is it will be the same as a VW polo and one i done on a old golf was under the mechanism in the cab for the gearchange and wasnt too difficult to change
