You will need to use the engine size to get the right cable for a german car or use the chassis #,from a vw dealer.

    you should have a paper sticker under the mat in the boot(trunk)and it will give the engine in kw(kilowatts)otherwise use the chassis#.

I have a problem with my golf 4 gti 1.8t....when it's cold it doesn't change gears I always have to wait and warm it up.... Once it's hot it will change the gears normal.


Hello Bongs,

Not an uncommon complaint...varied VW models (and German cars in general) are known to be hard to shift when cold.

Less-than-stellar 1-2 syncros? Zero tolerance build specs?

Some people have reported double clutching helps..some have suggested moly additives..others have suggested changing the gear oil to synthetic. Give your local VW dealer a call and inquire about any additives they recommend for your hard shifting GTi.

How to fit clutch cable to golf gti 2.0i 1997 engine code agg


Under the dash on top of the clutch pedal there will be a retainer clip holding the cable, remove that then a similar clip on the gearbox, you will have to undo a cable holder bracket to remove the cable, the cable will also have a gromet in the firewall that needs to be positioned correctly on assembly, adjust the cable accordingly with the adjuster on the gearbox once installed, good luck drive safely
