I have a 96 Audi A4 1.9 TDi on the 1z engine code.. this car has been very
reliable for me taking me all over the uk. When i bought the car a friend
said it sounded like there was a tooth missing on the fouth gear. I wasn't
that concerned as i did alot of motorway driving.
Recently a problem with selecting first gear arrose and it started crunching
into 3rd even when double clutched. and every so often 5th gear was not
available. I assume the gearbox is screwed. I have looked all over for a
replacement gearbox and t5hey all seem really expensive. Has anyone had any
of the above symptoms? And can anyone shine any light on what the possible
cause is and how to remedy without replacing the box. I was thinking about
breaking the vehicle as it is just sitting on my drive. but it seems a shame
to break it when it still has plenty of mileage left in it.
