Polo gearbox problem

2 posts in this topic

I have a 2002 VW Polo, 1.4 with a gearbox problem. It is fine going up the gears but coming back down it will not go into third. If I double declutch and rev the engine I can get it to go into third.

A friend said something about the syncromesh gear. Could it be htat and what would be involved in putting it right? Is it OK to drive?

Welcome to Tyresmoke +++

Polo gearboxes aren't the strongest of things and they don't last too well over 80k miles (there are exceptions!). Yes, it'll still be fine to drive, but the cheapest long-term fix will be to replace the gearbox. Google reconditioned gearboxes - there's a load of specialists around the UK.
