SOURCE: 2003 VW Polo TDI 5speed - Sloppy gear lever/shift

It should feel pretty tight, but germans (vw audi bmw porsche mb) put a lot of rubber bits in the linkage and when the rubber wears out, there is more play. 
If you want to fix it yourself,  check with the folks at blauparts.com for parts and advise on this.  They have OEM VW and Audi parts and they run a first rate repair shop also.  They will be able to tell you what rubber shift linkage parts are available AND how hard they are to replace.
germanautoparts.com is good for parts also
Dealship is usually most expensive for OEM parts.
Good luck,  when you get the rubber stuff replaced, it should feel nice and tight

SOURCE: gear select lever is very loose. It move forward

There is a pin that goes through the shifter that hold it in place, along with a spring just inside where the end of the shifting lever is, that makes the lever "return" after you pull it back to shift. These springs can break and bind up. Take a look at both.

How do you tighten gear lever on cortina 1600e thanks


Inspect Linkage between shifter and transmission. Determine where the sloppy looseness is. Replace sloppy linkage parts if transmission lever is not loose. Pray you don't need to have shifter leverage (inside transmission) repaired.

Why can't I shift to reverse, third and fourth gears?


What does the gearshift lever feel like? sloppy? it could be a loose linkage between the lever and the box.
Other than that, it could be a blocked valve body. This entails lifting up the vehicle on an overhead lift, draining the automatic fluid, removing the oil pan from the box, removing the valve body and cleaning it out. Normally a professional's job, but you can do it in your home workshop if you have the courage.

T56 6Sp manual not engaging, gear lever sloppy


Check and bleed the clutch system. If the clutch is working correctly there will be no clashing of the gears during selection or attempted selection. Pull the gear lever out of the turret section of the gear box and see if the pin in the side that the lever pivots on is still intact. If ok undo the turret section of the box and ensure that the plastic cup on the end of the lever is still in place . There is normally a small cup that fits over the end of the lever that takes the gear noise out of the gear lever and it also takes up the clearance between the end and the slots in the selector rails.

Gear lever loose & wont engage in 06 renault magane manual


Sounds to me that your cable is broke therefor not putting the car in gear. This can happen real easy. Have someone move the shifter for you and look at the side of your trans and see it the cable is moving. If not then you can do a visible inspection of it and see if it is broke.

Shifter is very loose, sloppy.


The shifter linkage has a two piece plastic / nylon bushing at either end of the gear shift tube that goes from the gear shift lever to the transmission. As the bushes wear through normal usage the gear shift becomes sloppy. The bushes at the gear shift lever end usually wear out first.
You may have to drop the exhaust pipe to access the underside of the gear lever as there is not a lot of space to work in above the exhaust.
To replace, remove the securing nut and through bolt where the underside of the gear lever U section attaches to the tube. Pull down the tube and the worn bits of the bush will come out. Place the new bushes in either side of the tube and put tube end back between the U section. Replace the through bolt and nut. If still a little sloppy, you may have to do the transmission end bushes as well.

Car wont turn over


Make sure the shift lever is working properly. If the lever is sloppy and loose it is not engaging the proper gear for starting (P or N). If this is the case a bolt is loose or missing on the shift mechanism under the dash. Get under dash with a flashlight and check the shift Mechanism. Replace or tighten the bolt(s) securely. There are two and are probably a brass color. This problem happened to me and it is quite common on the Villager.

Gearbox 'clank', and someting sounding like it is loose


Sorry but it's not loose, you have a bad shifting fork. The first gear fork is going or gone which causes the mis-shifting. You are hearing the clutch basket most likely. With the backlash in the gearbox you can get a noise coming from the clutch hub coming lose from the primary drive gear it is attached to. I also believe there is a chain for the harmonic balancer that needs to be adjusted. It makes a nasty noise and sounds like the engine is almost grinding when it does it. The noise will go away under accelleration.
