I prefer phone calls right now as it lessens my email/computer load. At the moment, there seems to be some sort of German engineering vortex swirling on top of our family. We have 2 Jettas, 2002 and 2003 and both, on the same day come down with transmission issues. I searched specifically for manual transmissions due to the auto transmissions being known for failing. Taking them in for repair would cost 6 to 10k for both vehicles, clearly NOT an option.
So, it looks like I'll be having some Jetta transmission fun
If anyone here is a VW anything, that may be able to assist in finding parts or even suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate the input. My wifes 03' is the current priority, 6 speed with the VR6. From what I've read, brass riveted shift forks are most likely to blame.- The transmission hasn't eaten itself, no grinding noises or likewise. The selector switch seems to be fine.... WONDERFUL!!!
