First gear became difficult a few weeks ago. Now reverse is even more difficult and both getting worse. Is it a cable problem or something more serious. Can cables be adjusted.

Thanks in advance.

Does it select easily with the enigne off?

I have posted a possible cause in "1996 Passat TDi - difficult to get into reverse". Hope this helps.

Mine was doing the same but the cause was inside the transmission. The selector mechanism was the culprit. Cost for the repair 850. So if your Passat still doesn't want to shift into reverse or first after the gear selector cables have been adjusted. :aargh4:
