if its gears 2&4 then you should get it looked at now as it will be an input shaft problem, and, at this time will be repirable but not for much longer!

yeh it is 2nd and 4th got to put a bit of force to get it into 4th but its going like it in most of the gears now i just want to get it sorted really doing my head in. when i am stationary at lights and go to put it into first it takes about 3 attempts to go in.. so do u think that would be an input shaft problem?

i had the same problem, was gettin really hard to put in to gear, so tightened my clutch cable and was ok, then it started to get really difficult to get in gear again...........then my pedal box snapped!!!

as the pedal box was starting to bend it was kind of slackening off the clutch cable, so when i tightened it everything was fine, then as the pedal box bent even more it got to the point where it just snapped

vw did this FOC on my 1.4 SE

if its only those specific gears then its the box mate...dont chance it.

If the other gears go in fine, then its not the clutch and not the cable. It also means the gear mechanism on the gearbox should still be set up the way it has been since new, unless the box has been swapped out before.

A 1.4 16v gearbox will fit your engine if your desperate to get your hands on one to get you by. Thats what i did.

Didnt realise these would fit. Whats the gearbox code mate, and whats the ratios like compared to a gti box?

take it to a garage first...have them check your clutch, release bearing and mechanism...THEN it'll need a rebuild if its not anything else.

A rebuild will set you back between £350-500...depending where you go.

Hence, if you dont have the cash...use a 1.4 16v box, it has a higher ratio so revs about 500rpm more in each gear and you lose 10mph off your top speed but 0-60 increases and it can shift!! trust me.

The gearbox code is CWX and it normally goes onto the AFH engines.

It is a straight swap and you'll be smiling :)

BTW...if your mechanically minded...you could do it yourself, it is extremely painstakingly hard when you have the car a foot off the gound on axle stands and your lifting this box up to mate it onto the engine! i've had to do it 3 times...it sucks. :?

i work in garage so its easy for me mate. its def not my clutch its a bit stuff, in the morning shes perfect clutch nice and soft then when I'm on and off the clutch and she gets warm thats when it gets hard to go into all the gears. so gunna put a gearbox clutch and clutch cable in it no messing around. do u think that volkswagenspares is any good? i was going to buy a box from their, got the cash so just gunna put another gti box in their.

They seem like they're reputable...you should be fine then mate with a new clutch, cable and box...
