Question about 2008 Dodge Avenger

Problems with switching gear on a VW Jetta 1998 manual.

I have a VW Jetta 1998 manual. I had it stored (out in the elements) for about 6 weeks. The other day I went to get the car and it started beautifully but I couldn't get in reverse. Switching gears was very tough as moving the gear stick was nearly impossible. In the beginning I thought that perhaps if I drive it around a bit it would loosen up, so I drove it on the third gear (with difficulty managed to get it on the other gears too except in reverse), I think, for about 5-6 miles but the gearbox did not get any better, so I had to leave the car at that spot where I had it parked for 6 weeks. Does anybody know what could the problem be? Like I said, I drove it myself about 6 weeks ago, and it drove fine, had it parked, and when I went to pick it up this problem occurred, meaning it happened from sitting in one spot, I suppose?

I have a manual 1990 vw jetta reverse selector thing is broken


i believe the piece you are talking about is the part that makes it so you have to push down on the shifter to put it in reverse. a euro parts store or the dealer can probably supply a new one.

Problems with switching gear on a VW Jetta 1998 manual


It sounds like the slave cylinder for the clutch needs to be bled out first (it uses brake fluid) then if this does not help replace the clutch slave cylinder unit before transmission damage ensues. You must bleed out any air in the system after replaceing similar to how brakes are bled in acar with an assistants help.
