"It makes me love my car even more..." - George W.
All hardware necessary for installation in an A2/A3 chassis car with rod-shift transmission. (This includes all Golf II and Jetta II 4-cylinder cars except for PG engine code. G60 and VR6-powered cars are equipped with cable-shifted transmissions.) Further procedure details are found on this excellent SmartShift DIY page.
The linkage system in these vehicles is nothing short of a modern wonder. It is truly mind-boggling that they can become so loose and sloppy and yet still allow gear selection. See this customer-contributed video for ample evidence. Is it a cruel joke that you're the only person on Earth who knows how to drive your car? Actually, you're not alone. Replace your worn out parts with a SmartShift kit and feel the difference! You'll be amazed. We promise.
