The Most Important Shifter Improvement for MK5 and MK6 Volkswagens.

  Make your MK5, MK6, Volkswagen, Audi, Seat or Skoda shifter good and tight again with our replacement bushing set! These cars are getting older and rowing through the gears isn't as crisp as it used to be. This is primarily due to degradation of the spongy rubber bushings used in the shifter linkage. We address wear and factory design compromises with our precision machined Delrin and stainless steel linkage components. Save time and money by picking up high performance replacements for all the 'usual suspects' on the late MK5 and MK6 cabin shifters in one convenient kit! This kit includes these four products: 

  Additionally we highly recommend the Super Slider if you're using a stock style shifter at the engine compartment end of the linkage. The Super Slider dials out addition slop and unlocks free Fedex 2-day shipping; select it using the drop down menu. (Skip the Super Slider if you have our Sigma Short Shifter; the Sigma includes it's own special slider.)

(The list above does not include all VAG vehicles that use the riveted forward pivot pin  WHT001413 and bushing 6Q0711067A that is compatible with this kit.) 

Important note: Due to the bonded construction of the front to back cable end, the larger front to back cable bushing contained in this kit should only be used when the original cable end bushing has gone bad. The reason for this is that the original bushing is co-molded and bonded to the plastic cable end. Unless it has already started going bad it is likely that you will face quite a fight removing a bushing that has not already separated from the plastic ring at the end of the shift cable. We suggest that you do not replace the Front to Back cable end bushing preemptively. 

Install: Please note that you will need to remove the center console of your vehicle to install this kit. This is the most tedious part of the install process. (It's really not all that difficult.) We have a video below. Additionally, there are in-depth install videos for each of the individual components located on their respective product pages; use the links above.   

US shipping:  When this kit is order with the Super Slider we include $6.99 FedEx 2 Day shipping! Slower US Postal Service shipping is around $3.00.  We ship Monday through Friday from Colorado except on holidays. 

International shipping:  USPS shipping is currently suspended due to USPS system backlogs. In these uncertain times we offer the slightly more expensive but much faster FedEx International Economy® service.FedEx will likely collect local taxes upon delivery.  Also, for Canada, the new USMCA trade agreement will reduce taxes and duties on this item.

Almost perfect kit!

Have used several of your products and have had great results. The bushing kit was no exception, although I would have liked a couple small additions to make it perfect. The nylon clip on the transmission bell crank becomes extremely brittle after 11 years and shattered into pieces with minimal effort to try and release the tabs. Had to source the clip from the dealer which added a lot of time to the actual fix. Would be nice to have had this 3 dollar clip added to your kit to avoid having to spend extra time and money to complete. Super pin drivers side nut also needs a locking washer or lock tight as it’s a rotating part that’s subject to vibration. Lastly my shifter bell crank first gear getter bushing hole required about .004 of reaming to eliminate the interference fit. Shifter would not center and was extremely stiff until the clearance was made. ( just a heads up for future do it yourselfers) super happy with the final results!

Sounds like you had a bit of a difficult install. We typically don't hear of complaints about the bell crank clip, but like all German plastic, they can fail if you look at them funny.

There shouldn't be any torque between the Super Pin and the bell crank provided the pin end float is dialed out as shown in the instructions, And it's a light press fit between the 5/16' hole and the pin shaft, so locktite shouldn't be necessary but if A SINGLE DROP makes you feel better it won't hurt.

It also sounds like the hole in the bell crank through which the FGG passes on your car is smaller than nominal. We shoot for zero float, zero interference, but the stamping of the bell cranks does exhibit some variance.
