Is this a manual gearbox or an automatic transmission you are referring to in your query as both are available on that model?

It seems like we broke our Gearbox, the gearstick will just move up and down, not sideways. The car's stuck on 1st Gear.


Maybe, maybe not, lift the gearstick boot, look in press the cluts & try 2 move the stick (don't start engine), or behind the gear box check the levers, if is not, then.... your box needs 2 open.

96 Jetta 2.o liter has no reverse. have to put into reverse for 1st gear. does anyone know if this is linkage or clutch?


At the botton of the gearstick is a small clip that holds your gear stick in place, I had it on my V dub. The stick will slip into reverse but work 1st. It's a small job to replace, remove all the inside gear cowling, and lift out. You will see the clip broken, just take the circlip off, lift off the broken clip, replace with a new one, it's easy. Just Remember that when you put your car in 1st, (reverse) your reversing lights come on, giving the car behind you a bit of a shock, if you are sat at lights etc! Have fun, dave

Switch


on the gearbox n/s u will see a cable that moves it from park etc.
when this twist just a little it thinks u r moving the stick across.
if u undo the 13mm nut and turn just a liitle bit tighten it.
check your speedo cluster that the gear it says is correct to what gear stick says, if not adjust again until correct.
i had this problem myself and this was the case after i fitted a engine, engine and box has to come out.

Bushes missing from gear stick and transfer stick


If it's a later model (post 98), then I have an idea what's happened. On the rounded ball end of the gear stick that goes in the box, there is meant to be a plastic bush that is only a very loose fit on the end of the stick. If it has dropped while either removing or replacing the gearstick, and fallen into the area at the back of where the gearstick actuates the shift rail, then apart from having a very sloppy gearstick, you won't be able to move the shift rail backwards - which is what happens when you move the gearstick forward (1st,3rd,5th). This should be fixable from in the cab. Of course, if you have an earlier model, none of the above applies, as you have the gearstick moving only one of a choice of three shift rails with no bush in that area. The only thing that happens to those is the spring on the gearstick breaks (that can't be replaced on its own!)
