Metal Side to Side Relay Bracket for MQ200 Only

$138.00

Finally, a fix for those seized up plastic side to side brackets.

Volkswagen did a dumb thing. They started using a plastic relay lever on top of the transmission during the 2007 model year. Prior to this it was all metal. The old version had a stainless steel pivot pin running in replaceable plastic bushings which never broke. SO, the cars with the black plastic bellcranks are subject to a point of failure that the earlier cars did not have. It gets even worse if you live where they use road salt to keep the roads clear in Winter. The road salt gets inside the tranny's aluminum pivot tube and corrodes the aluminum to the point that the black plastic pivot pin seizes up. You will notice this as a increasing stiffness when you move the shifter stick left to right in neutral. Eventually it gets hard to shift into first and second gear and getting into reverse becomes dang near impossible. Don't wait for this to happen! This corrosion will leave you stranded and then you will have an expensive, time-consuming repair to deal with. Our metal side to side bracket kit is a bulletproof solution running in high performance pivot bushings.  This is a forever fix to the common issue of the stock plastic VW side to side bracket 5K0 711 203 or 5Q0 711 202 either breaking or seizing up into the transmission's aluminum pivot hole. 

What it fits: Only 2008+ 5-speed MQ200 transmission with plastic bell crank. The only model in the North American market equipped with this transmission is the 2011-2015 MK6 Jetta S with 2.0 8V non-turbo gasoline engine. Email us with a VIN if you're unsure. 

All 2008+ five and six speed manual VW/Audi cable shift cars suffer from this problem, though most models and trims used the far more common MQ250 <LINK> and MQ350 <LINK> transmissions. We offer a solution for these models as well. Again, please email us your VIN if you are unsure which transmission you have installed in your car. 

What it includes: Kit includes an all metal side to side bellcrank with machined plastic sliding piece and a pair of Perfect Pivot precision cable end inserts for the stock plastic cable end. A pair of high performance 1J0 711 067L bushings and retaining clip N 908 159 03 is also included as well as our 5mm adjustment pin to readjust your shift cable. This is a complete, turnkey solution to your 2007 and newer VW shifter problems.
