hey all just got my car back from dealers and whilst in there had a nosey in the workshop in there to my horror found out about a problem with early (MK1) A3s gearbox. (NOT QUATTRO)
most boxes used were mk4 golf boxes used and the problem with these is that the crown pinion in the diff are not bolted on but riveted these can shear and punch holes through the bell housing which in all asspects kills the box and clutch and leaks all gear oil out. so all if you have a leak from gearbox (fairly major leak) this is proberly the reason why.
P.S new box £1400 approx [attachmentid=247][attachmentid=248]
here is a pic of the damage

you would know if you had this probem as oil from the box would leak everywhere
as to your problem i would say its the linkages from gear selector to the box the rubber bushes wear and dont give possitive gear change and also sloppy gear stick movement when in gear if this is the problem its an easy fix by changing the gear linkage arms they are about £10-£15 each there are 2 and can be changed yourself. :thumbsup:
