Does anybody know how to do gear linkage on a gti. It's the ball and socket part that the gear stick sits into, do you have to take it out from the bottom?

Yep the exhaust has to come out (or if you're a VW dealer, it's just cut
) but then it's pretty straightforward. Well worth doing, it transforms a sloppy grearchange.

Does anyone know if you can buy these parts as complete repair kits or do you have to buy the links and bushes separately?

Cheers

GSF do a full linkage kit, not sure if the selector ball is included but they're only a few quid anyway. Most of them are easy enough to fit.

I bought the whole kit from the main dealer for about thirty quid.........totally transforms gearchange from a feeling like stirring watery porridge to positive precision changes!
