Re: neutral safety switch repair - need advice (joannieprin)

I've got a 5 speed GTI myself, but the exact same thing happended to my mother's 2000 Jetta automatic (2.0 liter) just 2 weeks ago. The dealer replaced the shifter solenoid with total labor charge for 1 1/2 hours, and about $200 CDN for the solenoid, total charge just under $400 CDN. Your quote seems a bit high in comparison.
I actually talked to the mechanic (took it in as a favour to my mom), who said that it's a rather painful job, and that her solenoid looked corroded as if maybe someone had spilled a drink into the shifter console

Hope this helps.
