Ask Someone: 2008 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan #1570915938

My father’s car has been outside since about 4 months ago and the transmission is not going into Reverse, 1st, 2nd, & 5th gear
I think it is the clutch linkage to the shifter but my dad thinks it is a locking pin

Ok, what is your question? I assume this is a manual trans… you don’t say.
I assume the car has lots of miles on it… you don’t say
Is it not going into gear engine off, or engine running or both? You don’t say

There is no clutch linkage to the shifter, they are separate mechanisms.
And, finally… what locking pin?

Apparently neither one of you are mechanics so this transmission ( manual or automatic ) needs a shop to fix it.
