Hi. I have made the dreaded mistake of removing the star-headed bolt on the front on the gearbox (1991 polo 1L, 4 speed), thinking that it was the oil filler plug. Now 1st and 2nd gears are very stiff to select. This is a well-known mistake (as I have recently discovered through google), apparently that bolt holds a selector plate in place. The general advise is that the gearbox will have to be removed and opened up to fix it. Does anyone have any other , less difficult/expensive suggestions to fix it? I'm sure someone here must have experienced this. Could I remove the gearbox end-plate with the gearbox in the car, and fix it through that opening? Any advise or sympathy appreciated.
