Go to the vw dealer and tell the service advisor you want them to "reset basic settings on my transmission". i used to be a tech at a vw dealer and this fixes about 90% of all transmission shifting issues. they will charge you iether .5 or 1.0 hrs labor for this although it only takes about 5 minutes.

When backing up 1994 Golf its makes a knocking noise on the drivers side


  • Are you backing strait up when this noise happens? Or are you turning the wheel also? Also is a definite knock of perhaps a more click click click click.? Does this even happen when going forward? When the car is in drive and you put your foot on the brake and go into reverse, do you hear a profound clunk? Please answer the questions posed to help me help you a little better.

VW Golf 3 jumping out of gears


Sounds like a stripped reverse gear. And for the second gear probally need a new gear (1st 2nd) and the syncros with a new hub. If too much metal from the gears has already made it's way around in the bearings through the transmission oil you might be looking at a new transmission. The Golf 3 generation had many problems with reverse gears. Sorry to be the one to tell you.

Vw golf mk 4


Hello Steve!

Sounds like your control arm bushings are worn, which allows the control arm to move too much during loading and making this noise.

May also be a result of play in one of the shafts CV joints but is less likely.

If it's a CV joint then you should feel/hear something similar when accelerating in lower gears and lifting the throttle quickly­­...

Hope this helps!
