Is there gearlinkage upgrades for gearshift problems on the manual transmissin ,internally ?

The issue almost has to be external. There is only one shift rod on these cars; it rotate a set amount and goes in-an-out. These shifters have a ball bushing at tunnel and attach to an arm that ties them to the transmission. There are several bushings/bolts/pins in this mechanism that are prone to failure. Unless you have had this car on a rack and dropped the transmission down, I am fairly confident that you have not changed all of the bushings. Also, failure of the transmission mount itself could allow for movement of the shifter (actually the transmission is moving appearing to move the shifter). This was a common failure on the M3 that caused many blown engines during down shifting resulting in grabbing 2nd instead of 4th and over-revving the engine.

Hope this helps,

Steering wheel shakes when at stop

checking the brake rotors for warpage and the tie rod ends will probably solve the issue, otherwise look at the suspension bushings, balljoints, and ABS system

    Will a 1996 VW jetta tranny match up with 1989-88 volkswagen jetta

    Yes. You'll need to swap your old speedo cable and the back up light switch is different. Also the 96 transmission uses the same clutch disc as the MK2 16v, which is different from the 8v disc, it's the number of splines on the input shaft. I'm putting a 95 Jetta 5 speed into my 1986 Scirocco. Make sure you replace the throw out bearing and the clutch rod seal and bushing in the end of the input shaft.

    My 87 VW Jetta is stuck in second gear and shifter just flops around. Any Adjusting feedback greatly apreciated..Dean

    Front wheel drive cars with transaxles use a shifter cable that runs from the shifter to the transaxle. Have a look under the hood and see if the cable broke loose from the linkages, or from the shifter itself.
    Best thing to do in this situation is to have a mechanic look at it. There's really nothing that anyone here can fix without having a look at the car and troubleshooting it.
