1995 Volkswagen Jetta Q&A
1995 Volkswagen Jetta Question: no reverse, manual
How is the clutch? If a clutch is worn on a VW, you will get no reverse, because the clutch has to really release all the way to do so. The fluid will have minimal effect on no reverse. if the clutch is good, then, yes check the shift linkages. - dandd
a clutch problem for reverse can be checked by trying to engage reverse with the engine off. if it goes in, start the car and see if it moves a) with the clutch in means its too tight b) with clutch out may not move at all likely internal issue c) barely moves could be worn clutch d) can't get reverse when off? try rolling the car a bit, if that does'nt help, check linkage. be careful starting in gear, the car may move, be prepared. - some guy
