Hello!

I've just bought a '95 T4 2.4 Diesel with 500,000km on the clock. The gearbox is giving me some trouble (I knew about this when I bought the van, and the price was right ;) )

The trouble is it is very difficult to select 4th when coming back from 5th. It is also a little difficult to go into 4th changing up from 3rd, although it is easier than from 5th.

It is also a bit difficult to select 2nd.

When the van is stationary, there is no problem selecting any gear, so I suppose the linkage is OK.

I've tried double-declutching (I'm an HGV driver of the "old school") and that doesn't help.

Does anyone here have any suggestions? I've tried searching the old posts on here but haven't found anyone else with similar symptoms.

Many thanks

A quick addition:

Today I flushed the gearbox with diesel, and refilled with VW's own gear oil - this has resulted in a noticeable improvement, although the basic problem is still there. Still, an improvement is an improvement!
