Anyone know how to set up the bolts on the coupling of a 4 speed MK2 gearbox, I can't seem to get the bolts tight and still be able to select all the gears. I don't understand the Haynes instructions to be honest. With the screw (right hand in pic) not fully tightened I can engage 3 & 4, but 1 & 2 are only available by pressing in the stick as if for reverse. Reverse cannot be achieved. Any advice from someone who's done this before would be much appreciated.
Hi there! I'm new to this forum as I have just bought myself a polo 6n2 1.4 16v as a present for my son who is in need of his own car. I bought the car a little sporadically (on a well known internet auction site!) and as such did not have time to test drive it. The good thing is I got it rather cheap, although there does seem to be something wrong when choosing gears. With the engine cold and running it is hard to 'find the gears'. It is almost as though you have to meander down a path to find each of them - however you can get it into ever gear! I know very little about gearboxes/ linkages, could someone please help tell me what is likely wrong and the best way to fix the problem? I am pretty handy and have this week off work so I don't mind getting my hands dirty! I am able to add a video if that helps? Many thanks, Sam
