Hello All :)

Having an issue where I can not shift to 6th gear. Initially I needed to adjust my shifter because I was having trouble getting into 1st. Now I can no longer get into 6th.

I have gone through adjusting the trans again thinking maybe I missed something. Car now has 202K miles on it and still runs great.

Any ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Did you lock the shifter in the car, before you started the adjustment under the hood at the trans?

Yes I did. Followed the Bentley manual.

I had a issue with mine when I was doing the adjustment. It took a few times to get it right. I blame the locking tabs on the shifter cable. They are spring loaded and when released did not grab the cable properly so it took a few times to get it right.
For your sake I hope that its as easy as fine tuning the adjustment. I had to replace the trans on my 2000GLX after the speedo sensor in the trans fell off and lunched the rest of itself. I think it cost me about $1800 to fix.
On a side note....there is a 6spd trans out of a TS for sale in the classifieds here on the Org. Lets hope you dont need it. http://newbeetle.org/forums/parts-accessories/59349-fs-02m-6-speed-transmission-code-err.html

Great info here. Will need to check in my area for a good shop that services VW trans. Need to also price a used one. Not sure if I'm up to doing a rebuild myself.

Thanks for all the info!
