Hi

there wearing noise is the thrust bearing, it is not unusual for them to make a wearing noise in reverse but if you think this has gotton worse latley then it might need looking at. the part is very cheap to buy however you have to remove the gearbox to have it fitted so labour costs can be high. If you don't need to do it now then you might as well get other work done at the same time to save on labour in the future. so get the clutch checked if you do decide to replace the part. if this part fails then you will not be able to drive the car and it could smash the gearbox internally. Like I say though all cars make this noise when reversing so only payout to get it fixed if you think it is unusually loud

Regards
Dan

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.

Speedo not working , vw golf 2001 .


I tell you for sure that is the sensor problem from gearbox.the sensor, or the wire. The fuel gauge is connected to the gearbox because is not very nice to corner and the fuel gauge go up and down. Now because the fuel gauge "didn't know" how many miles did you made, he is moving up and down. All recent cars have the same problem, and had the same problem on my girlfriend Golf 4. It was the wire. The mecanic forgot to put it back.

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.

Gearbox growl


If the engine and gearbox are vw then i would think it may be the
diff as the bolts holding it together are very weak and can break
causing gear selection problems and finally failure.If you get a reconditioned box make sure it has high tensile steel bolts in the diff otherwise after another 50-100k you will have the same problem.
