    sloppy 6spd gearstick/shifter

    hey peeps

    so my newly acquired 08 jetta gearbox needed a replacement 5th /6th gear shift fork - I dropped the end plate and replaced it today.

    I adjusted the cables with the selector mechanism on the gearbox locked out, and a 5mm bit in the shifter lockout as well. no more slack in the lines.

    the gearstick/selector feels sloppy like loose

    I have checked the reverse or shaft slider bushings they're ok

    it seems the shifter ball plastic bushing is a bit average, do you guys regularly need to replace these? ?

    new to vdubs so just checking in with the usual suspects?

    any good threads let me know! '

    thanks

    heres the shifter

    the ball is metal

    the plastic housing that encompasses the ball is worn

    as is the first gear getter bushing

    I cannot seem to find this variant of shifter/gearstick in the parts manuals, was this an early type that is now discontinued?

    all the ones I can find have plastic shifter ball and a metal retaining clip on top... ?

    anyone know how to pull the plastic insert out of the housing, do you have to break it to get it out?

    Understand how it works, troubleshoot logically BEFORE replacing parts.

    Genuine Bearing shell VW AUDI Beetle Convertible Eos Golf 1K0711699 | eBay

    found this on ebay which matches, but just wanna try and suss out if I need to remove heaps to pull this plastic housing out.. I tried just levering it out but doesnt seem to want to move.

    if its a simple matter of pulling it out and shoving a new one in i'll replace it cos it irritates me.
