Gear Linkage


Risk Warning

Driving a Volkswagen car with a Gear Linkage problem can be very dangerous. The gear linkage connects the gear shifter to the transmission, so if it’s not working properly, it will be difficult or impossible to shift gears safely. This could lead to stalling and difficulty accelerating or decelerating, making it difficult or impossible to react to unexpected situations on the road. In addition, it could cause the vehicle to remain in a certain gear for too long, causing the engine to overheat and possibly fail.
