Take the knob with you to a hardware store, and find a metric bolt that will screw into the knob. This would be the easiest way.

Yes, a universal shift knob will work in the Volkswagen Golf. The shift knob is added to the shift column by removing the top of the knob and using the included screw to attach the knob.

A good place to find an owners manual for a 2002 Volkswagen Golf 5 door manual shift is eBay. You can also obtain a manual through Volkswagen.

A seized up transmission can cause a Volkswagen Golf with an automatic transmission to not shift and racing RMPs after second. A worn gear can also prevent shifting.

If pressing the brake pedal does not allow a 2002 VW Beetle to shift there a problem with the brake switch. The switch acts as a safety when shifting a vehicle and if it malfunctions the transmission will not be able to shift out of park.

The "automatic gearbox" Volkswagen used to put in Beetles is an "autostick" transmission. It has a three-speed manual transmission connected to a vacuum-operated clutch and a torque converter. There's no clutch pedal but you still have to shift it.

The shift patterns for older German vehicles such as a 1985 Volkswagen Golf followed a basic H pattern. The only exception was the reverse which required a driver to push the shifter down, left then back.

There isn't one, you shift by "feel" or by the red tick marks on your speedometer ,|,&.

typical H pattern ....push down and to the left for reverse

Not enough information. Will the car shift gears with the engine off? Is the gear shifter stuck in one particular gear?

If it won't shift out of park sometimes or all the time it probably needs a new brake light switch.

Gearbox may be worn There's two places on the 'shift rod' under the tunnel that wears out. It's probably the shifter 'shift coupler' or the 'shift rod bushing' under the gear shift. Pick up the "Bentley" Bug manual for your year and it will tell you how to do it. Kinduv a pain but still do-able.

THERE IS A SMALL SWITCH UNDER THE BRAKE PADDLE THAT SUPPOSE TO TRIP WHEN YOU PUSH ON THE BRAKE TO ALLOW YOU TO SHIFT. I BELEIVE THERE IS A RECALL ON IT. BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS TRY TO CLEAN IT USINF WD40

Yes, it would be possible.Parts from a "Beetle" to make it work would run in the range of $1200 to $1600 USD and labor probably about $400 USD.But I'm not sure you want toThe Volkswagen Type 1 automatic transmission was actually called "autostick." It is a three-speed manual transmission connected to a torque converter. You didn't need a clutch pedal, but you still had to shift.

A doctor will determine bacterial infections. There are normal flora in the body and a shift in this flora could suggest infection.
