only 2 gears
« on: 10 May 2023, 19:12 »
hi all hoping for knowledge - new to golfs and daughter just got back from new mot and lost gears - car is 1.8 cab - box code is aug18011/3. The problem - drove fine, no whine all gears ok, stopped with engine running then only 3rd gear available - got going then got 2nd and 4th lost all others. There was no crunching but they were hard to engage. Disconnected linkage at gearbox actuation lever and can only get 2 and 4 - there is free movement for reverse but won't engage and it appears that one direction of travel in the gearbox is baulked. Oil level is good. Not sure where to start any ideas welcome. thx
