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.

SOURCE: Reverse gear has grinding noise...?

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.

How to fix gear shifter linkage on 1998 Ford explorer?


There are two adjustment that can be made on the linkage. One is located under the steering wheel on the column, the second is under the driver side linked to the actual transmission. I will address both. The adjustment located under the steering wheel is located on the actual steering wheel column, it is used to adjust the arrow that shows if you are in drive, reverse, park ect. So if your arrow is showing you in reverse but you are in park, this is the adjustment you will use. You must take off the panels under the column to get to it. Once you have removed follow the cable to the steering column where you will see a white round adjustment. you either tighten of loosen and it will adjust the arrow, The second is located down bellow on the transmission, under the driver seat on the actual transmission, to adjust this u will need a long flat head screw driver, You will have to get under the driver side of the car behind the front tire. You will see the transmission, use the screwdriver to pop the cable off of the actual shift leaver. There is also a clip that is oval with a white lock on it, you must push up on the white lock to release the cable so it will adjust. once under you will see it, might have to use the handle end of the screw driver to push it, hard on the fingers . this will free up the cable for adjustment. Now for proper adjustment it states put the shifter in drive, adjust the actual transmission lever under the car to the drive position, make sure the emergency brake is on, the park position is the furthest the lever will got to the back of the car. So push the leaver forward towards the engine tree times, reverse, neutral, and then the third drive. put your cable on the leaver, push it on it will click on there. close the adjustment you opened earlier and your there. proper adjustment

How to remove my Keys from 2003 envoy they are stuck


Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator
If the vehicle is equipped with a floor mounted console gear shifter, it has a ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column as an added safety feature. The ignition lock cylinder control actuators purpose is to prevent the steering wheel from being locked when the transmission is in gear and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of a ignition lock cylinder control acutator, and a park position switch that is located in the A/T shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control acutator contains a pin that is spring loaded out to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when vehicle transmission is not in the Park position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the Park position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. GM has had some problems with this , If you have the console shifter there is a micro switch that when put into park a linkage pushes on this micro switch closing the circuit to ignition lock cylinder control actuator allowing you to remove your key ! These linkages fall out causing this problem ,an have electrical wiring problems as well ! I fixed a 2006 Chevy cobalt that had this same problem by getting a used shifter assembly at the auto salvage year ! cost $20.00 . There mite be a access hole under the bottom of the steering column with a release button up inside !

How do I get a stuck key out of an ignition lock cylinder on a 2006 chevy impala 3.9 motor


Does it go into the lock position ? Will the shifter go into the park position ? Is it a automatic transmission ?
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
There should be a hole in the bottom of plastic steering cover or a rubber cover that comes out . you can stick your finger up there an there is a button you push that will allow you to take out the key !

Passat stuck park


Do the brake lights work?

The button on the automatic transmission shifter wont push in and change gears. The car is stuck in park.


The problem is the park safety switch on the brake pedal (a gblue rubber looking ring under u pedal) because it is not working correctly the pin under the center console is stuck and not releasing the shift
In my case the tip of the blue rubber ring under the pedal broke therefore it did not press the switch which pulls back the pin which locks the shifter in park. (this can cause your break lights to stay on if it breaks or falls off when you apply the brakes)
so, for a few dollars you can replace the ring which notifies the switch to allow the pin that locks the shifter in park to release it.
I did not know I had broke the blue thing (another day, another story) and needed to get somewhere fast so...
I removed the 4 screws that hold the face plate that the shifter sticks up through, I found a white pin down in the console (there is a square white switch underneath and to the left that works the pin, i bent back the bracket until i could pull the pin put of the shifter lock and put the car in gear. However, my car does not lock in Park now. I figure I could use the parking brake if worried which never have and i have had no problems. In fact I forgot all about it until reading this post. Guess I ought to put the pin back in the switch since a few weeks later I had to fix the blue piece in order to get my brake lights to turn off.. (the other day, the other story.)( and how I stumbled upon The Rest of the Story!)
I apologize for my undeveloped vehicular parts terminology. I am not of the male gender and therefore lack the DNA required for innate understanding of anything mechanical. But i can use a screwdriver and look around .....Its that easy!

How do you remove an Ignition Lock Cylinder from a 91 saab 900s


Option A
  1. remove driver side seat
  2. insert the key and turn to midway between "lock" and "accessories" position,
  3. push stiff wire tool such as metal coat hanger, into the hole in the side of the gear housing at the ignition lock, to push in the spring loaded pin in the housing
  4. while pushing on the pin, pull out on the key to remove the cylinder
  5. to re-assemble, reverse the procedure; check that the tooth segment driver pins in the gear lever housing are in the correct position to receive the new cylinder
  6. push in the spring again, and insert the cylinder until it clicks

Option B
  1. Cut down a spare key so that it's about 1.5 inch long measured from the tip, and has no lobes.
  2. unscrew the console: two screws under the shifter boot, two screws in the rear base visible after removing the ashtray.
  3. insert the key in the ignition, turn to "run", put shifter in neutral.
  4. lift console up on shifter lever, if necessary you can undo the three Torx T25 bolts holding shifter into base and lift it out, to completely remove the console.
  5. undo the gear lever housing nuts, needs a special Saab tool but you can make one yourself, it just has three tabs equidistantly spaced - here's a pic, 13c7448.jpegfrom saabcentral forums
  6. remove the lever housing, place in a vice, and follow Option A above.

Shift gear is stuck on park and can't get it out of gear.


Hi there,

There are multiple things that must all happen in order for the shifter to move from park.

1. Make sure the key ignition switch is in the "Run" position (the position just before the "start" position).

2. Brake pedal is depressed (usually pushed in a couple of inches or more at least to release the button on the shifter).

3. Push in the button on the shifter and pull back (you may need to push the shifter slightly forward or back a little for the button to move freely).

If the button on the shifter still doesn't push in freely, there is a problem with the mechanical lock-out linkage or electronic switch that releases the button lock. Check under the dash area along the brake pedal arm for anything that doesn't look correct.

4. If the car is on an incline/slope/hill, it will put a lot of pressure on the parking pin in the transmission. Usually a strong tug or pull on the shifter will pull it out while you're pushing on the brake pedal to prevent rolling when it releases. Make sure to set the parking/emergency brake first to prevent this next time .

Good Luck!!

Thanks

2008 Chevy Impala transmission shift lever locked up...


I had this problem and its common on the impala. There is a manual release button under the shifter trim. Remove the trim and look down and on the passenger side you will see a silver button near the bottom. With the shifter in park push in the button and this will release the shifter. You can drive the car as long as you don't put it back in park. If you do just push in the button and release it again. My problem was a broken wire in the shifter cable. You won't find this release button in the owners manual. After mine was repaired I drilled a inch and one half hole in the passenger side of the console opposite the level of the button in case I had future problems. Just reach in with your finger and push in the button to release the shifter.
