when i put my car in reverse you have to push down on the shifter pull left and then up. But, when i push down initially it wants to stay down and it wont pop up.
this was not happening before. I just recently put in an autotech short shifter.
Could this be causing the problem? Please help.
Thanx

Am I reading this wrong?
My car was fine. I modded it. Now its not fine. Could it be related?

bahahaha.

Hmm. Well, ever since I installed my short throw kit, my car doesn't go into second very well.

Re: Putting the Golf in reverse... *problem* (obvious510)

With not being able to get into second.. chances are you need new bushing in the shifting linkage. I believe TT has a kit with all new pieces for the shift linkages (read it on here before.. somewhere). I'm in the same boat as you on this one..
I bet it might even be a possible cause for the shifter sticking (reverse or otherwise). At least, for $10, it's a reasonable try..

Under shift linkages: part# 798.101
Cost: $10.00
