Cable change gear linkage

Recommended Posts

Help! I have a 95 16v golf and it has recently stopped letting me select 5th gear. I found some instructions on how to adjust the linkage and had a go myself. I succeeded in making the other gears a bit better but still no 5th. Is there anyone you could recommend to have a look at it for me. The car is used everyday on the motorway and driving in 4th all the time isn't ideal.


Any help  would be appreciated, cheers

To be honest it was difficult getting into 5th for a while. I was able to select 5th using the lever on the selector but not with the gear stick. It feels like it is almost in gear but grinds when you let the clutch out. Is it more likely to be the synchromesh?

Can you suggest anyone to take a look at it?
