This part will quickly replace the weak forward end of the factory fwd/aft shift cable where it connects to the transmission linkage. It is also commonly used for "side of the road" repairs when the fwd/aft shift cable breaks. Simply tighten down the 4 stainless internal hex bolts to grab the fwd/aft cable and use the existing hardware to re-attach the fwd/aft cable end to the transmission linkage. The factory shift weight is retained, and this part adds even more mass for smoother shifting. If your cable is not yet broken, throw one of these in the glove box and be prepared for the inevitable!
There is no need to source an entire shift cable mechanism (which is very hard to find, and also quite pricey) in the event of a broken fwd/aft shift cable. Simply install this part and you are back on the road and ready for action!
Fits MK3, MK4 Jettas, Golfs, TDI’s, Beetles, Passats, and Corrado VR6 with the cable shift system.
