Hi guys,

my girlfriend owns a 1999 V reg Golf 1.4 which struggles to get in gears "its a Golf"

the previous owner had fitted a tow bar which is still on it, which made me think, why the hell would u want to tow anything with such a low powered car? dumbo!

anyway, any ideas what gearbox i would need?

hopefully the driveshaft is ok... although sometimes when driving through gears 2 and 3, the accelerator pedal judders.

the clutch bitting point is very high up so im guessing thats fine

any ideas????

much appreciated

alright mate.. umm have you looked underneath the car for any signs of oil?

mine was struggling in gear. mine has had 2 previous gearbox's and its a 1.4 16v too..

there is a common problem with them which a hole gets made inside the gearbox which makes oil leak onto the clutch which makes the car judder.. i know a place where i can get a gear box for 200 quid i know it alot but tbh if you take it to a garage it will be around the 800 mark
