Question about 2005 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

2005 MKV Golf cannot go into reverse on its tiptronic gearbox

I recently bought a GolfV but have discovered that I still cannot select reverse gear even after topping up the ATF oil with two litres of fluid. My mechanic has noticed a vacant "plughole" on the gearbox and suggests that this may lead to the solution.

Find a VW mechanic, those cars are known to have weak automatic and manual transmissions. You probably need a new one. Don't cheap out and buy a used one or you'll be sorry when it doesn't last. A quality rebuilt trans should have at least a 1 year warranty.

Freelander tiptronic shifting failure


You say up and down hill. Does it work OK on the flat? If so, there is a sensor for detecting the fact that you are going downhill and this holds the gear you are in when in auto mode to achieve engine braking. I believe failure of this should throw a fault code in the gearbox control unit if this is the case. It could be that the failure of this sensor is inhibiting tiptronic mode, but I can't be sure. Either way, get the dealer to read the codes from the gearbox, not just take it up the road and say they can't replicate the fault.

You will need to check the gear linkage hasits free movement and the gearbox mounting is secure. This happen on a Polo recently and the securing bolt to the gearbox mounting had fallen off leaving the gearbox hanging. I hope this helps you.
