I recently decided to buy my dream car, 1988 vw scirrocco Wolfsburg edition. I bought it stuck in 3rd gear.... the shifter is solid as a rock, doesnt want to move, it will drive in third but no other gears at all... any and all help would be appreciated.
I would say check the clutch cable and the adjustment to ee if it is moving clutch fork enough if so and that is not the issue then you'll have to remove the transmission and check to see if a spring popped off the clutch disc or the throwout bearing is bad if everything loos 100% perfect no clutch dust decent clutch disc with no chatter(shake like a maraka)? If all that is good then maybe something in trans? What does shifter linkage look like,shifter bushings,shifter ball?
