Question about 2006 Volkswagen Passat
The shifter was locked and when I released it by pushing in the pin on the cylinder under the shifter and put in reverse it sounded like the transmission was going to fall out. no previous trans. problems afraid to drive.
Has a brake release that allows you to change the gears. could be linkage. trans can be tricky. VW are expensive and if passat is like the jetta, these trans are one time uses. take gear lube and not to be refilled. may need to replace it.

Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.
