MushMeister (clutch cable guide upgrade)

$65.00

As with other aspects of aging Mk1 - 3 vehicles, the 020 transmission's clutch cable system leaves something to be desired. For example, the cable is located by a "damping rubber" which adds a mushy feeling to the pedal. We're not sure why the factory thought it was helpful when every driver knows it sucks. Replace part #171721308 and add precision to your clutch actuation.

Then there is the "jounce stopper" assembly that attaches the clutch cable to the operating lever, part# 1H0721303. The portion that sockets into the lever invariably breaks off making reassembly a frustrating pain.

MüshMeister's metal bits are precision machined from 6061 billet aluminum and anodized for corrosion resistance. Compare that to the rusted stamped steel parts in place on your car for the past 15 - 30+ years. Our assembly is far easier to install and uninstall, locks the cable in more positively, and contributes to more direct clutch modulation.



What the world famous SmartShift1 and SmartShift2 do for tightening up the shift linkage, MüshMeister accomplishes for your clutch cable action.

Way more solid pedal feel and are more consistent friction point. My friction point is back at the top 1/4 of pedal travel like it should be which equals quicker shifts. Highly recommend doing this to any O2O

Great add on to the shift linkage kit. The slop went away, firmer clutch pedal feel, and eliminated the worn out rubber bushing. A must have.

If you own a Mk1/2/3 with an 020 transmission, this is a MUST. You don't realize how terrible the stock set up is until you get something great in there like this. I'd also suggest getting the USRT SmartShift linkages/bushings. Once everything is dialed in you'll have a crisp shift feeling (which is NOT commonplace for these cars). (lol)

I drive a 1983 Mk1 Rabbit GTI. I bought this little guy and there is definitely a difference in clutch engagement. -a way more positive feel and it's super easy to install, too. You can't go wrong with this little upgrade!

I would recommend this for anyone who owns a Mk1/2/3 or anything with a 020 trans swap. Before I installed the part, I took notice that I about 6 inches of pedal travel before I felt any resistance. After installing, I now feel my clutch again and I am not grinding the second gear syncro anymore. This is a super-easy to install product. It looks really cool as well. A must have!!!!
