Dose the clutch pedal drive in gear 1" from the floor OR 1"" from the top when you let it out. if its drives when almost out and there is a vibration on the pedal then the clutch needs replacing and it has nothing to do with the gear box or oil
But the gearbox has to come out before you put a new complete clutch in

Thinks its in Drive all the time, will not start... used to be abled to shift back and forth and it would start.. now it doesnt... cut the neutral safety switch wired them together thought I'd out smart...


check gear shift cable adjustment correct. loosen cable securing bolts at gearbox, make sure gearbox is in park. put gear selector lever in park and re tighten bolts at g/box. if this does not solve the problem, multi function switch on g/box could be faulty.

No heat


Look under the dash to see if the controller flaps are working(Unsure if u have auto or manual cable adjustment) move the hot to cold lever or press the button if electric as the old cable systems do break.Is the thermostat okay, look if the heater radiator core is okay, do you get a mist on the windscreen and sweet small?this can be done by removing the panels on either side oth the gearbox tunnel(footwell area) then use a torchlight to check.Some engine models have a 2 way valve in the engine bay/firewall area connected to the radiator that can rust or sieze and stop heatflow to the inner heater radiator.follow the radiator pipes going from the engine to the firewall to find it.

Gear problem


Check out the engine and gearbox mountings. With the engine cold, try and rock the engine backwards and forwards. Have someone check each mounting in turn.

I have a VW passat estate on a 51 plate,when the engine is cold the gear change is fine yet the further I go the harder it is to change gear


I experience the same problem in my '03 passat TDI130 5dr. Gearchange when hot became increasingly baulky.

VW Checked this out, linkages, clutch hydraulics etc were fine.

Solution was to have the Gearbox Oil changed. This cost about £65 and was using VW052 transmission fluid.
