  • 86 Scirocco trans issues

    It appears that I have an issue with my transmission. The shift selector will only go to 5th gear and neutral. The linkage is disconnected and the selector will go to the driver side, and middle, but not to pass side. It will not go into the trans at all which would be the other gears.

    Sounds like you need to tear that puppy apart. I can't imagine anything that won't require a full rebuild. I'm no tranny expert though.

      What Ben said x 2. Have you aligned the shift linkage per the Bentley? Got all the old sloppy shift linkage bits swapped out? Trans making any self-grinding noises? I may have a spare JH trans in my parts stash, but I'm in FTW IN, probably way too far south to help - but I;ll check tomorrow anyways...

        That's my guess, based on my research it may have been overshifted, but also the 5th gear end cap sat unbolted with weight on the mount so it easily could have screwed something up.

        This is with the linkage completely disconnected and only using the selector lever at the trans. I have found another for now, but I would be interested in picking up a working spare pending the cost. I work at the FTW GM plant often.

            If you can take the big threaded cover out opposite the selector shaft the whole selector shaft will slide out. That might help determine what you are dealing with.

            I have a fender roller. Contact me if you'd like to rent it.

              Thanks joe. I have a replacement engine and trans to go in, but I hope to figure this one out for a spare.
