    Bringing in my 2017 Golf Wagon in next week with this issue.
    Hopefully they can resolve it quickly. Don't have photos (it's so intermittent, and unsafe to photograph while driving!), so hopefully they know what to do.

    Hi Vader,

    How did you go with the fix? Was yours a warranty repair?

    I recently had the shift assembly replaced on a 2016 Polo Gti under goodwill from VW.

    This car has only 40000 km and full service history so might have helped.

    I was quoted the cost when first diagnosed was $1880 and questioned whether VW would offer some goodwill, given many posts of the same problem on the internet, they came back with a no cost replacement, so happy with the outcome.

    The dealer showed me the selector unit after it was replaced and there would be very little chance pulling it apart to replace the microswitch which gets gummed up.

    From what Ive read and advised by the technicians that done the work some VW models are the full shifter assembly replacement, others can be a new P position micro switch fitted and daughter board , this solution is only a few hundred dollars.

    So you can only ask the question of the dealer, they did also advise it wont affect the driving of the car but progressively keeps throwing up the error more.

    Hi Dav44e
    My mk7 golf had the same issue few years ago, got it replaced under warranty. And a few weeks ago the warning message came on again but the car is now out of warranty.

    I'm just wondering how smooth was your experience getting it replaced under good will?
    And would you mind letting me know which VW dealership this was?
    Thanks
