Question about 1989 Volkswagen Golf
1. Sorry to keep bugging you...I also find the reverse gear crunches alot. It's embarassing! I have to turn the engine off, quickly put it in reverse and then park up. It happens about 90% of the time. I have driven lots of cars, old and new so I know it can't be that I haven't put my foot down on the clutch properly! 2. Automatic choke reving seems very high and never cuts out i.e. still high right through to the end of the journey. Any ideas?
Hi. Maybe a vacuum leak or a auto choke issue keeping the idle high. If the idle is too high then the reverse gear will crunch.

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.

SOURCE: no reverse gear
This question should be deleted. Aside from the obvious illiteration, there is nothing in the known universe that could be stuck in an oil filter that could cause the transmission to fail, nor could the oil pressure. What most likely happened is someone did a neutral drop and blew a solenoid in the transmission. Rebuild/replace transmission, or drive without it.

Sounds like a minor bearing fault, can be fixed quite simply although you would need to take the box out and send it to a transmission specialist to replace the faulty bearing(s)
