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
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
