VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT AXLE PROBLEM

2000 Volkswagen Passat • 117,000 miles

We have a 5 speed manual transmission that we cannot get into Reverse. All other gears are working fine right now. It was difficult to get into reverse once and now it will not go into reverse at all. Feels like there is resistance when we try to move it to reverse. This is a V6 model of the passat wagon. The clutch was replaced about 4K miles ago.

As stated try that method.

There has been issues with reverse on these transaxles. The slider gear has a high failure rate.
