Hi all,
I have a 1998 T4 multivan. over the last week I’ve struggled to get in to first gear comfortably and yesterday struggled everytime I tried. I viewed some threads on here and was going to tick off a few common faults however, something which is not mentioned in other posts is that I struggle to get in to 1st + 2nd gear however now once I’m in gear the stick moves as if it’s in neutral in any gear... so I could drive along and wobble it about...?!


It had some electrics done last week and the bloke mentioned he couldn’t find reverse gear (I’ve got an 8ball knob!) the knob was turned slightly when I got it back and I can’t work out how or why... is there any common damage that could be caused by trying to force the gears when trying to find reverse??

Your bushes on the gearlinkage may be worn Very common fault the parts are cheap to replace. some People have no bother getting the nylon bushes on some have a nightmare and have to strip the thing to bits! Like me argh.....lol
