What happens to gearboxes when not stored properly

I often say to customers that gearboxes are a bit like Christmas presents you really dont know what you have until you open them.

Re: Popping out of 4th Gear

replace all the linkage components first, and change your oil if it persists your fourth gear is probably knackered from not changing down on hills other codes are here http://vwt3.com/t3-tech/t3-data/t3-gearbox-codes/ but the page has one or two mistakes so dont take it as gospel
