Question Answered: 

you need to take your car back to the shop that did the repairs as it does sound related to the repairs you just had done.

Question Answered: 

there's a good chance that you have a broken shift fork, that's more likly to happen than the syncro's going bad. we've seen a few of these over the last couple of years. if that's the case the trans needs to come out and split to replace the fork and related parts, cost is around 1500.00.

Much like Hal says your check engine should be on. Why don't you send over your VIN number and I'll it thru the VW computor to see if there are any open recalls or campaigns. Have the coils been replaced? Mike

Question Answered: 

both codes are stored in the transmission, you most likly have an internal issue. Is the transmission slipping or shifting erratic? Check to see if the fluid smells burnt as well. If it is burnt than you do have an internal problem. Sorry for the news.

Question Answered: 

It's very possible it is a motor mount, c/v joint, or bushings. Feel free to bring it in and I'll have one of my techs look at it for you at N/C, it should be pretty simple to figure out. I hope this helps. Take care.

I agree with Journeyman, no more than 1 hour for this repair. Grind the pads dosn't sound correct, maybe they are replacing your brake pads??? Or maybe they are re-surfacing the brake rotors, either way it's about 1 hour in labor. $120.00 tops. take care.

If you just want the CV Boots replaced and the control arm bushings installed it should run about $440.00 total. If you want the axle replaced as well along with the boots add another $120.00 in parts no additional labor as it over laps. I hope this helps, any questions give me a call at 415-241-8100 ask for Mike.

Question Answered: 

your noise could be a couple of issues going on, 1) a possible exhaust leak, 2) internal engine noise (hope it's not). If your in the area just pop in and I'll have my shopforman take a quick look at it and he can give you an idea of what's going on.

Question Answered: 

We've seen this before, it's most likly the #1 and #2 syncros. The problem is, they are brass and after a while they become more egg shape then round. You can try to adjust, but 90% of the time you have to replace the syncros. I hope this helps. Take care.
