Polo 6n2 gearbox issues

Post by Nathancoops » Thu Jan 25, 2018 7:22 pm

First post hope iv posted in the right section so here goes been hearing a slight whine coming from what I think was the release bearing on the clutch that goes slightly when the clutch is in, but driving home the other night it's started knocking really loud that also goes but when the clutch is in but whines instead, since it started knocking iv now also lost drive in 2nd 3rd and 4th gear just feels like it's going into neutral but the gearstick doesn't move had a quick look underneath and the rear mount looks knackered aswell anyone know if my gearbox has gone or if it's worth getting it looked at or where am I best getting another box from looking at stripping and fitting myself

Sounds like the box if the whining isn’t going with the clutch down

eBay or a breakers Yard is probably the best place for a gearbox. You’ll need the same gearbox code though. This is a three letter code and will be on the sticker under the boot carpet after the engine code
