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 suggestions?

I would first as if you have replaced the shifter linkages and bushings, this is the most common of shifting issues as well as the rear motor/tranny mount breaking and allowing the shifters to bind.

If you look at the linkages, and you remove them so you can manually shift it does that work.
There are 4 and 5 speed linkages so you have to watch what you buy.







5spd



4spd


I would of seen this sooner is you had posted in the mk1 forum, as you have a mk1 based unit, or rabbit/golf mk1.
