hope someone can shed a bit of light on this for me.
ive got a scat shifter for the beetle, fitted it but dont seem able to get reverse, all forward gears are ok.
its the t bar shifter with a lever that pulls up for reverse at the front of it.
its probably me being a numpty carzzy but any advice would be cool.
cheers :thumbup:

I had exactly the same..
Firstly you need to check the gear coupler up by the gearbox.
Then make sure all the bushes are 100% intact,the bush under the shifter was missing on the split when i fitted my scat shifter last month.fitted a new bush and it worked brilliantly.
Also check that the shifter physically lifts into reverse,mine needed adjusting as it wasnt selecting reverse properly..
If all that fails you may need oval the holes where you bolt it to the floor as it sounds like the shifter needs to move forward to select reverse.
Be patient with it,i was at my wits end trying to get mine to work and now its amazing

I could with mine untill i fitted the scat..
Apparently all the bushes and coupler have to be 100% perfect for it to work properly carzzy
