Good afternoon all, After I finished work last night, I quickly realised that I was unable to put the car into 1st, 2nd or reverse gear. Luckily I managed to crawl home in 3rd & 4th. The clutch feels fine and the pedal box was replaced only a few months ago (I have checked this too and it's not cracked). I don't know anything about gearboxes or gear linkages. My Haynes manual doesn't give me much information about this either. Is this a common fault? Does anyone know how to fix this? Cheers Ben
Hi there! this is my first thread and I need help! I have a seat Arosa mk1...same as vw polo 6n1 1.0L and rod type linkage! ...club Lupo seems to be dead so I thought here is my best option! The car is an autosolo car - not a road car so doesn't have to be mot/nct, in Ireland the car doesn't even need to be registered to enter! anyway... Me and my friend put a new clutch in that we got from a scrappy! all good! we got the car rolling again and all gears were good but reverse just isn't there, right before the clutch went the gear linkage went so the one in the car is another one from a scrap yard ( we are both 16 and money is tight ) we have played around with the gear linkage under the car holding the gear stick etc everything that I have found from googleing! but still no luck ! we need reverse because if we mess up we will have egg on our face trying to push it back, although it's very light hahah, but what could it be? do I keep messing with the gear linkage? or is the one I have from the scrap yard too long from being stretched in the car it came out of? also where the gear linkage connects to the sub fame that connection is broken! but when got the car reverse was working fine without it being connected to that? what is the problem here? I need to get it working in under 30 days because the last round of the championship is on! thanks for reading and if you can shed any light on my issue that would be much appreciated!
