Re: Gear display switch F208

You can buy this part from your VW dealers, the part number is : 020919823

It is the gear recognition switch mounted on the gearbox housing. This may not neccesarily be the problem, so I would inspect the switch first.

You can also test it using VAGCOM

Hi Hajo, I didn't want to post till now in order to tempt-fate but when I replaced the auxillary battery it fixed this.

The gear recognition switch is F209 (also called gear monitor switch) link, this is the one which reports if you haven't pushed the gearstick in properly so digiswing knows whether it can close the clutch or not :)
