The ball is what has to come out. It is held in by a plate with 2 nuts. If you took out the clamping bolt, put it back in, because that is just for the eccentric adjuster.

In my book it also looks like the rod to the front may have to be removed in the front, so that the rod can tip and come up with the shifter. If so, you might also have to remove the exhaust pipe, so that the rod will have clearance.

Although it would help to tell us why you want to take it out and what you are trying to accomplish. Because then we could make other suggestions, like the whole shifter housing is just bolted down with 4 bolts.

    There is an eccentric adjuster in the middle of the stick.
    So it is probably not broken in half, but just came apart.
    The bolt that tightens down on the adjuster may have come loose.

Volkswagen Jetta won't go into gear from park what


There's a relay on the brake pedal arm that actuates when you press the brake pedal. This releases the lock on the shifter, so you can shift out of Park. VW's are notorious for having issues with this relay. Stick your head down by the brake pedal and you'll see where the pedal arm hits the relay. It's more than likely stuck, and may not need to be replaced. I'm guess you probably have no brake lights either...

My2001 vw jetta manual transmission wont come out of 3rd gear and i dont know why


Does the shifter feel loose? Does it drive in neutral or does it lock in two gears if you select a different gear? I'm trying to determine if it is a transmission problem or a shifter problem. It is likely a shifter problem.

I have a stick shift car. the shifter came loose today. i took apart the console, and found where the shifter attached to a rod that lets it change gears. but, i can't figure out how to reattach it. it...


What you speak of is called a hiem joint. There has to be a sleeve or ring still on the trans rod the holds the ball in the socket. Look on the shift rod and see is it still there. If yes, pop the ball back in the socket and the ring back in on the ball, Find out what holds the ring in against the ball and fix that.

U mean on the shifter irself inside the car?? If so, u just unscrew it, but won't solve ur problem at all.

Instead replace the 2 plastic link kits located on top of the tranny. They are about 3 inches long and they can be popped off with a little prying. Costs about 30 bucks for the pair, even less.

Also for the shifter itself it can be adjusted by the dealer but must be done on a lift. Go to the dealer if the 2 linkages are replaced and still doesn't shift properly.
