well my five speed is like

R 1 3 5
|- 2 4

You are suppose to push the stick literally straight down, not like going towards second, that is going back.
But actually down to reach Reverse. Anyone who drives a manual VW knows this.

Well here is my problem. My car has started to have me be able to select 1st or R without doing that!
I can select reverse and the move it over and select 1st! And has even another slot between R and 1st where it's like a slushy feeling going to 1st. Really weird.

All gears work GREAT, and have no slipping clutch. What is causing this?

It causes issues at stoplights making me go into reverse instead of 1st sometimes! :eek:hnoes:

Going to Reverse is similar going from 2nd to 1st now!

My mechanic also thought it may be the linkage. He said there is a kit for it for about $50. Will update when I eventually get it done.
