my '00 2.0 Di has at times got a horid gear change mainly from 1st to 2nd
and alot of play side to side when in gears
i know its a worn linkage or ball joint as the gearbox is fine other than the spongy gear change
did i mention the van has done 236K lol
its a work horse that i drive 12 hours a day and its not going to set any land speed records so i'm not fussed about a quick shift but on the other hand from what i know mk4's have gearboxes that feel like old ford type 9's in selection.
all i want is to remove the rediculous amount of play, the cheaper the better but i'll spend a fair amount if i have to
