Well as the title says. The only catch was this was a manual. I searched quite a bit on the net and here with very limited and old results.
Model- Jetta GLS
Transmission- 5spd manual
A month or so ago; Was driving on the freeway, was getting on the on ramp, got on it a little bit, (ashamed here, please dont bash too hard). My foot was faster then my hand and GRRRRIIINNNDDD!!! NOOOO!!! I quickly put the clutch back in and continued on my way with mostly what it seemed as no issues. Shortly after I noticed the speedometer bouncing a bit but hoped it would "correct iself". The rest of the drive to my destination and back was fine. Everything seemed OK.
Every so often I would catch it (or thought I would) bouncing just a bit but couldn't get it to do it where I could watch. Last night on my way to work. It went crazy! Bouncing 5+ mph in either direction and cruise control was useless as it felt like someone was trying to give me whiplash. Driving without cruise control was smooth and whiplash free but the needle kept bouncing.
Sooo... here I am today. I took a few (6 to be exact) and some pics of replacing the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) on a manual transmission from the top.
I was just wondering before I go and upload a bunch a pics nobody wants/needs. Is there an interest for this? Also, so far so good after replacement but it was only a short drive..
I drove it to work tonight (~20miles) using cruise 90% of the way there and it seems to be good for now. Going to monitor for a few days at least.
