There is nothing you can do about it. The gearbox need to be opened up and the gear clusters inside must be serviced. To fill it up go to a spare part dealer who will know what type of oil is used for every type of vehicle. Crawl underneath your vehicle and look for a plug with a (usually) square head on the side of the gearbox. Turn it out and fill it up until the oil starts running out of the hole. Replace the plug.

How much and type of gear box oil do I have to use in my mk4 golf, 1.6 litre engine transmission( gearbox)


Mark 4 VW Golf Manual Gearbox
VW has a specific blend of gear oil for that gearbox that you need to buy from VW dealer Parts department. If you cannot get it there, you can use a 75w-90 fully synthetic automotive gear oil .

The capacity is about 2.2 quarts (US) so ensure you buy enough.

If you are changing the gear oil yourself the vehicle must be level. Completely loosen or remove the fill plug first, to ensure you will be able to refill it ,before you remove the drain plug and drain the old oil out of the box. You will need a fluid pump in order to pump the new oil into the box and you keep adding the gear oil until it begins to run out the fill opening. It is full when it stops running out the fill opening so it is important the vehicle is level when you are doing this service.

You will need a good 17 mm Allen key to remove and refit the drain and fill plugs in the gearbox.
The fill plug is on the front left side of the transmission case while the drain plug is on the bottom by the dog bone.

VW CABRIO CAR GOES THRU AND SHIFTS FINE WHEN YOU FIRST START OUT AFTER ABOUT 3-5 MINUTES GOING DOWN THE ROAD IT WILL COME OUT OF GEAR IN LIKE A NEAUTRAL POSTION I PUT SHIFTER IN NEAUTRAL AND THEN BACK IN...


Is it a full auto box or auto with manual selection. Full auto has only 1,2,D,R. If its full auto take it to a regular tyre/exhaust place and ask them to help.
The vw and audi auto gearboxes that also have selectable manual gears are only reliable when they have the correct clean oil in them.
The oil is special and expensive, and you must only use the oil from VW. If you havent changed the gearbox oil, get it done. Its much cheaper as a first step, compared to taking the gearbox apart to check for wear or damage.

I have a vw type 25 diesl combi 1987 1.6 .the gearbox linkage has come away from the gearbox end. my garage fitted a second hand box about four years ago .Its given me loads of grief really never going...


More than likely it needs the "cup" part on the transmission as they are prone to failure. The part is available and the job is not too awful.
The Bently Manual is a much better reference and will walk you through it.

VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle. once clutch is pressed sound goes. car drives fine with no noise in 1st-4th gears. unable to select 5th gear.. just grinds and wont engage. VW Golf...


No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.
