Info:- Auto Gearbox Modes Part 1:
The automatic gearbox on the mk2 has 3 options
1 - No button pressed . this is normally used for everyday driving
2- PWR button de-pressed . this changes the relative kick-down position . the box will tend to change down the gears more readily at the same throttle position . it also holds each gear till a higher rpm . used for spirited driving
3 - MANU button de-pressed . this is used when fewer gear changes are desired , for eg motorway driving . the gearbox will select a higher gear ratio for the same throttle settings in normal mode
The gearbox can be made to pull away in 2nd gear , useful for icy , snowy conditions . select MANU mode and 2nd gear
The overdrive switch is located on the gear lever . this is in effect a 4th gear and is usually selected under normal driving conditions . IE overdrive on , no light on dash
