Almost every time i shift to 5th i get this screach noise!.. once i hit the gas its ok!... if i let off the gas, as car goes slower, the screach comes back!
what it does is that i can shift to 5th fine, right when i shift before i hit the gas it has that sound, if i dont hit the gas i keeps making the noise... once i hit the gas its goes away, after hitting gas then letting go its still ok, until the speed starts to reduce, thats where it come back!..
all other gears are aok!
i posted this http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=919175 did not notice that there was a tranny forum at the time..

feeling the shifter it feels like its wanting to come off 5th, but it does not!..

This is on an 01 gti 1.8t,. so if anyone knows let me know what it might be...
May it be lack of oil!??

Re: 5th gear troubles.. (luisda)

I'm having the same problem in my Corrado. Loud howling in 5th only on decelaration. Anyone out there have some advice?

If you have power train warranty, take it to the dealer. The problem is likely a lack of lube and now 5th is damaged.
