Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
I have the same problem with my 2003 Passat TDI. There is a magnet in the gear selector to engage and disengage the manual shift. I live in Thailand and am waiting on the VW dealer to locate one. If you are a little bit hands on you could possibly do the repair yourself. the replacement part is the plastic that slides up and down when you select your AUTO gears and of course to pull to the gate to engage manual shift. The magnet is part of that plastic replacement part. Cost 2000 baht which is about 42 English pounds.
