im in no way intending to start any problems, but use spell check, and add commas and what not..I am trying to help but can barely read what you wrote (or it could be i am extremely tired ???)

Sounds like your gearbox is acting up , but I could be wrong

Clutch you will feel it going. if the clutch is going 1. the clutch pedal will catch high, and 2. sometimes it won't go into gear without grinding.

Found out ive got problems with both the clutch and the gearbox, not healthy.

GEARBOX: from what iv heard its a common fault on the gearbox the unit has rivets in which tend to wear and fall out leavin a nice hole in the gearbox. Most recon gearboxs have replaced these with bolts.

CLUTCH: bearings gone.

looks like im gona be spendin some money.

tip: if buying polo gti, make sure its got a recon gearbox then ur laughin. if not, expect trouble.
