There are access panel for these vehicles all the way toward the back just ahead of the transmission on the under side of the vehicle (floor board center remove the bolts to expose the shift rod mechanisms often time s they are broken or worn inspect and repair, there is also a mechanism up front you must remove the rubber boot to expose the hold down bolts for the shifter mechanism you may be able to readjust after greasing the mechanism to regain function, either way these are not easy mechanisms to work on be sure to scribe around the perimeter location of mounting plate on the front shifter before unbolting just as a reference point.

1999 VW New Beetle 2.0. Manual transmission. I can not get it to go into reverse.. When I push down and to left it is going into 1st gear. The car drives great. get 1st ,2nd , 3rd, 4th, 5th no...


Sounds like a plastic grommet is broken. You'll have to raise the car and check the cables/linkage at each end. You'll probably find on one end that the grommet is missing. And you probably not be able to buy just the grommet. you will have to replace the entire cable.

98 vw beetle wont go in reverse


I have a 1998 and I just confronted the same problem. It seems to take like 1 gear in reserve and like 2 gear in 1 gear. Any thoughts? I don't really it should be the transmission since it still works going forward in 2 different gears. Thanks.

'78 VW TYPE 2 SHIFT COUPLER?


Short answer...not too tough.
Longer more useful answer...
Get quality urethane replacement.
Put car in 1st with gear lever.
Block wheels and climb under with (I think10mm and 13mm) wrenches.
Undo grub screw on coupler (to linkage).
Undo through bolt on coupler.
Push linkage forward and remove bits.
Replace bits with new ones and replace through bolt.
Have friend carefully put shift lever in about 1st gear position and guide coupler onto other shaft.
Tighten grub screw.
