hey, does anyone know where I can find short throw shifters for my mk4? The transmission feels stiff when I LITERALLY chuck it in to gear, especially 1st even when the clutch pedal is to the floor. I'm hoping a short throw as well as replacing the plastic transmission bearing will help with it a lot, but I can't find any and don't want to order one that won't work if it's from a different car. Also looking to get a different gear knob (push down) any MacGuyver tricks with a non specific one? The stock one is ugly imo. Any advice is welcome, thanks.

and do a gearbox oil refresh... god knows how long it's been in there... lifetime for the manufacturer means max 10 years... ( even less for some other manufacturers) so if youu don't know when it has been done just replace it.

when the engine is at operating temperature,remove the fill plug first, than the drain plug... there is a how2 section on the forum use that as it is in there.. tip use the index-topic in that section so you can quickly find what you need.
