  1. 1993 VW Cabrio Shifter issues

    Volkswagen Technical Discussions - General
    I have a super clean 1993 VW Cabrio that has a shifter problem. It starts and runs fine engine wise, but it is a manual and only goes into 1st gear. If I shift into 2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear, it goes into 1st gear. It will shift into neutral, but any gear I shift into, all I get is first. Any...
  2. Automatic transmission

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Hello All, I'm looking for an automatic trans from a mk1 or 2. I would prefer a diesel but they are much harder to find. Not sure if the converter is different. I also have a 5 speed if someone wants to do a conversion. I could also use information if you have some to share. Thx everyone.
  3. '86 Cabrio manual to power steering conversion

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Has anyone done a Cabrio steering system from Manual to power? I am almost finished this complex job, and have one more item... The shifting rod from the manual system will not fit on the power system, as part of the rack gets in the way, so I need the proper shift rod. I am in contact with...

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Sorry, if this has been asked several times, I'm sure it has but it seems like I can't find the right one. I wanna change my automatic shifting knob in my 2007 Base model Rabbit, to a manual knob. (I know, learn to drive stick, lol, but not helpful now that I bought this one.) My friend has a...
  6. Stuck in Park - 2007 Automatic City Golf

    Golf Owners Club
    Hi, my golf won't shift out of park. It is an automatic and doesn't appear to have an override. The usual brake, ignition, button doesn't allow the shifter to move. The solenoid makes a sound when the brake is depressed, while the car is running or key fully turned. I can't pull out the...
  7. '73 shifter issues

    Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    Shift has gotten almost impossible, and the shifter is loose and rattles terribly. Research suggests I just need to replace the shifter bushing? I've also seen this would be a good time to replace the coupler as well. I'm on cip1 and see the coupler kit and the shifter bushing with ring. Do...
  8. Windshield for 81 Caddy P/U

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Okay...picked a Caddy today that was part of a bulk deal. Mentioned over in Lemon Snowball thread. I probably have over 95% of the parts I need to put it back on the road...just missing the plate (not the ball and socket) that goes on the floor that the shifter parts then attach to...and...

    Golf MK3 / 1993-1998
    Hi guys, I bought this mk3 gem while back and something is bothering me. Shifter seems to be loose. Should that white plastic part be inside the black metal ring?

    Aircooled Classic Beetle Technical Forum

  14. 85' shifter and hazard light issue.

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Recently swapped a 1989 transmission into our 1985 cabby. It shifts great but only if I lift up on the shifter. If I shift normally I can go into reverse without pushing down and it is difficult to find gears. If I very slightly pull up on the shift knob everything works perfect! I think the...

    Jetta / Bora MK5 / 2005–2010
    I bought a shift knob and boot for an Audi A3 and I figured I would try to retrofit it onto my 2007 Jetta since my knob was getting old and didn't look too appealing. The part came in and I followed a diy I had found. The main problem is that I had to be pulling the button on the knob outwards...
