SOURCE: Trouble with Gear Shift not going into reverse

That is your brake light switch that need to be replaced. Ask your dealer if he can do an "N4" and it might be free.

SOURCE: 03 passat gaitor replacement

Hi, The knob does twist off and they can be on very tight the best way of doing this without breking the gear stick is to get mole grips or a good wrench and hold this tight onto the gearstick so as when you try turning the know you can then hold the gearstick steady.
You might need someone else to hold the mole grips or similar tool holding the gear stick so that you can undo the knob on top.

It does undo but can be tight best you get something holding the gear stick still so as not to damage the plastic cups on the bottom of the gear stick joining the linkage to the gear box as these would involve more work.
Try and get some one to hold gear stick secure whilst you undo the knob.
Hope this is some help tp you let me know if you need further assistance

SOURCE: 2002 Volks Jetta GLS-difficult to shift into reverse gear

no recals but if you are the oreginal owner you have untill 2010or 80,000 miles before the warranty runs out, and if you are past that I bleive you will need a T.C.M transmission control module.

My car wouldnt shift into first nor reverse


you have a definate concern inside the transmission your gears are marred badly the gears 2-5 are synchrnized and helical style for smooth shifting 1st and reverse are spur cut so you cant accidentally shift into these gears while driving i would look for a good used transmission

You probably need a new, used or rebuilt transaxle installed. I would have a junkyard swap one in if the cars is in good condition, or sell the car for parts if it needs lots of work or has high miles.
