Hi everyone, ive had a look through the search but nothing directly answered my question, so......

Ive got a mk4 110bhp 130k miles and im having big problems getting it to go in 5th, alot of the time I get 3rd instead. I was just wondering if this could be fixed or do I need new linkages? If so, how much is it likely to cost?

Thanks, Paul

Is it a 6speed box?

The gear linkages can be adjusted pretty easily.

If u google 'diesel geek 6speed' you should find some drawings on how it's re-adjusted.

Pretty easily done within 5-10mins, pop open bonnet, lock down s elector, undo the links, set the gearknob into position + lock, adjust linkages. job done.

That should be enough to fix it.

If you really want, u can try replacing the end links too with new ones, but normally adjusting them is enough.
