No, it means that the linkage needs adjusting.vw dealers have a steel template which makes it dead simple...

Still waiting on answer for golf sdi wont start loud juddering noise from gears.


Volkswagon golf sdi 2.0 2007 model broke down and wont start. when trying to turn over gear stick makes loud juddering noise and moves side to side.

This is a difficult question to give a definitive answer and could only be answered by putting the vehicle on diagnostic equipment to check the error codes that must be in the ECU. The thing that caused it to break down could be anything from fuel starvation to sensor, coil or CDI problems. The gearbox thing is also puzzling, gearboxes do fail, but they don't take the engine with it, engines fail, but don't take the gearbox with it.

I would tow it to a Volkswagon dealership and ask for an estimate. May well be beyond economical repair.

Hi, I have a vw golf 2003 2L sport 5speed manual. It doesn't shift into 1st gear; what could be the problem?


The problem is the 1st gear synchronizer damaged. You need to replace it with new one. For this operation you need to remove the gearbox out from the car, then dismounting the gearbox, and replace the 1st gear synchronizer.

VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle. once clutch is pressed sound goes. car drives fine with no noise in 1st-4th gears. unable to select 5th gear.. just grinds and wont engage. VW Golf...


No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.
