Jetta 5 1.9Tdi gearbox issue

Post by Mudman » Mon May 07, 2018 1:07 pm

Hi Guys,

I need some help with my 2006 Jetta 5 1.9TDI 5 speed gearbox. My gearbox is slipping out of 5th gear. If you keep it in 5th by hand it runs fine without any noise, if you accelerate you can hear it slipping a gear, but steady driving it is fine. What can be the problem.

Second question, I have been searching at all the secondhand spares dealers for a gearbox. I have found a number that is available that the okes say that it comes out of a 1.9 TDI but none of these gearboxes match up with my gearbox code. My code is GQQ. I have found other ones but not a GQQ. The guys also cant tell me if it came from a 1.9TDI Polo or Jetta or Golf. Is there somewhere a list with compatible Gearboxes. Can a Polo box work or must it come from a Jetta 5 or Golf 5?

Guys please help, I'm Lost.

Regards
Johan

Hi
I'm not sure about the compatibility of gearboxes between models but I would rather have my own gearbox reconditioned than buying a second hand gearbox. Although you might be paying less for a second hand box than to recon your own, you would have a guarantee on your recon and you know that it's right. When you buy a second hand box it might fail after a couple of months and then you ate back to square one...

When a car tailgates me, i slow down - then floor it and give them a cloud of diesel smoke to choke on :driving:

Jumping out of gear can even be a simple thing as an incorrect linkage adjustment. Rather have your box looked at.
But if you give th codes of the boxes you can find we might be able to tell if they can work.
