  5. Gear Lever Assembly

    Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Hi All, I've just changed the linkage bushes on my T4 1.9 1999. Was hoping it would solve to floppy gear selection situation but it hasn't. I also did the short shift mod as well while I was there. I took the gaitors off the top of the gear lever to ensure that I had the stick lined up...
  6. Gear lever problem (after bush repair)

    Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    I've repaired the bushes on my 1999 1.9 T4 which if I'm honest was unbelievably easier than the majority of the posts on here suggest. I think the major Issue people seem to be having is getting the bushes on to the t bar and and the socket in to the mount. The socket was simple and is just a...

    Technical Articles
    At the weekend I decided to rebush the gearshift rods to try and sort out the change and adjust it so I could get first. As theres been a few threads asking I figured I'd write up how to do them. I replaced the usual suspects, which are the bushes on the end of the T rod, which lifts the shaft...
  9. Gear Select problem - help please

    Engine & Gearbox
    I have a 2.4d which I have got a slight gear selection issue, at first I couldn't get 5th but I bought the Bush kit from VW and replaced it (at the box end) and that sorted that. However I still have an issue where selecting 2nd is a bit dodgy, it seems like you can push the stick to far...

  14. 2.4d gear change problem

    Engine & Gearbox
    Just picked up my new van. 2.4d with manual box. It will not engage 2nd when changing down unless I 'pretend' to put it in 1st and then go into 2nd. This I can live with and suspected it may be a simple worn linkage or similar. Now the problem has got worse on my drive home yesterday. It now...

    General T4 Chat
    I have gear-change probs with my T4. It's not the gearbox it's the selector linkages. I had the two white plastic balls replaced last year, then early this month it all went waffly. They were all there but felt like stirring porridge. Had a local non VW, non secialist, garage look at it & they...
