There is a bright red puddle under your Volkswagen, which may explain the ear-splitting noise coming from the gears. You need a VW 5-speed transmission, or at least some replacement parts, to stop the transmission fluid leaking out of the vehicle and jeopardizing the moving parts. There are manual and automatic 5-speed transmissions available for Volkswagen vehicles. Manual versions are easy to use with a positive shift action. They have closely matched gear ratios and a design that improves fuel economy while minimizing engine noise. The transmissions do this by reducing the engine revs when you travel at a higher speed. Manual VW transmissions come with lifetime oil, so they do not need regular maintenance. Automatic Volkswagen vehicles have no clutch pedals or gear levers, so the transmission adapts automatically to your driving style. There is a 5-speed automatic transmission for VW cars that have transversely mounted engines. Built by Jatco in cooperation with Volkswagen engineers, it has the necessary adaptations for the vehicle and electronic control unit. Whether you need a manual or automatic transmission, or any replacement parts, search the large inventory on eBay for a VW 5-speed transmission that restores your car's exceptional performance.
