Hey guys, I'm looking at buying a 2000 TT Quattro with a 5 speed transmission. It won't go into 1st or 2nd gear (guy at the car lot said it feels like the gears aren't even there as opposed to being difficult to get into). I know the 6 speeds have a common problem with the rivet that holds the shifter fork on shearing off - could that be the issue for this as well, or is there another possible issue that's more likely, such as the shifter bushings, linkages, synchros, etc?
Thanks in advance!
PS: I've tried searching and haven't been able to find any information that isn't specific to the 6 speeds, so forgive me if this has been answered somewhere already.
