My wife came to a stop while driving the van. When she went to take off she pushed the gas and there was a loud boom followed by a severe whining noise. The reverse gear worked so she got the van out of the road and call a tow truck. The van has not been driven since. I jacked the van up and spun the wheels while in park one wheel goes foward one go reverse. I started the van and put it in reverse and now that is making a whining noise also. What could it be?

I just purchased a 1999 VW Cabrio ...as is... It is equipped with a 5 spd. manual transaxle . I picked it up dirt cheap because it has a major issue going into reverse , grinds and makes loud noises as described by the previous owners but shifts fine in foward gears . I have not tried it myself for I have not picked the car up yet. Since most manual reverses are nothing more than sliding in an internal reverse idling gear , I am hoping that this may be a bent or misaligned linkage or cable ?


It could be clutch problem reverse gear not fitted with synchro so inclined to grind more if clutch adjustment is out ... 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio
