VW jetta reverse gear not engaging.

Asked by Jan 02, 2017 at 08:44 PM about the 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've got a 2001 VW jetta mk4 2.0. It wont engage in
reverse gear, but instead will move forward as if in
first gear while in the correct reverse position.  The
other gears work just fine, slight delay shifting into
third but nothing else other than the gear shift
being loose, can anyone help me figure this issue??

its possible your shifter just needs repair. But it could just be low fluid.
