My 02 Gti has been grinding second when shifting fast. (Yes, I am pressing the clutch completely in) I just did my 5,000 miles service myelf and replaced the engine oil with Mobil one and the transmission gear oil with mobil 1 synthetic gear oil. Tested and grind is gone. I dont know if it will last, but it is definitely gone now.(and no I didn't change my driving style. Well, just my 2 cents.........
BTW, when I took it in for them to warranty the 2nd gear synchro, surprise surprise, they say te car is "within factory specifications"

Re: Possible 2nd Gear Grind Fix for 2002 Gti's (scotty_passat)

I have run it, it has helped and we've been in and out of vw transmissions for years. From swingaxles to A4 chassis cars. I am giving you my encounter of what worked for m using Mobil 1 Full Synthetic Gear oil. As this is the internet, anyone can press the power button and become an expert. Just my two cents on what worked.................

On the flip side on my 95 Jetta GLX using Mobil 1 fixed the 2nd gear grind problem temporarily then it came back. The permanent fix is new syncro...
