Now that I've got your attention...

My tip shifts down but won't shift up :mad: so Fabio and I hooked the Vag-com up to my car (98 1.8T) and it said that my tip is STUCK in the "up-shift". :???: Could a vag-com cleaqr this so it will work, or are the magnets faulty? HELP ME HELP ME PLEASE!! :cry: it's been months and I can't figure it out, nor can the dealers! Any hypothesis are welcome!

Your CB5 brother,
Ryan :wink:

Sounds like the shift gate is broken. It uses magnets, and they are known to come loose. When one does, you end up with the problem you described. There are a couple of posts about it and there is no repair kit for it. It requires a new shiter assembly I believe.

I got that before, and was told that it wouldn't work, can you replace just the megnets? Or do you have to replace the whole shift mechanism?
