reverse bit tricky?

Post by danx55 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 10:12 am

hi guys,

engaging reverse on my 1.4t is pretty stiff .. often have to re clutch or maybe blip throttle a bit - worse after first start

....normal k thing? :)

any better workarounds ?

thanks
dan

Had no issues engaging reverse in the 2 years I've owned my 1.4t

Mine is perfect, one of the better boxes that I tried. M22 not M32, maybe cable needs adjusting.

No problem with my reverse gear, smooth as silk also.
You shouldn't have any engaging problems as it has synchromesh on the reverse gear aswell as all the other gears. Possible cables need adjustment.
