Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Does it go into every other gear besides the ones its doesnt?
How does the gearstick feel - is it loose or stiff etc?
Sounds like an issue on the gear selectors cables..you have 2 cables that lead from the gearstick to the transmission..so one cable does 1-4 the other does 5-R..if one of those cables pops off or breaks then you wont get certain gears to select..you only get one side of the gate..ideally you want to be checking the gearbox selector mechanisim that cables attact too..then have someone inthe car operate the gearstick..if no movement is seen to engage 4th and upwards then its likely the cables for that side of the gate has broken..the repair normally means getting both cables replaced.and usually this is dealer aquired..so you'll need to find someone verfiy as above then fit new cables in and that should sort it out..hope this helps
