Pulled the motor and trans to put in a new clutch and clean some stuff up. While in the process looks like i bent the shifter rod coming out of the box. Anyone has a pic of one handy so i know how it needs to be bent back?

And on a side note anyone in the NJ area parting out a car. Want to buy a new one cause a bent one will never shift well.

You should try to contact aytheory, he just parted out his A4 and he might still have the linkage since I bought his transmission.

Check with JHM, they might have the pics you are looking for.


Which one do you think you bent, the shifter linkage or the stabilizer bar?

Ok well the linkage was way past repair, so looking for the shifter linkage and stabilizer bar. Anyone in the NJ area parting a car and can get it to me fast? going to give AP a call tomorrow see if they have one on hand. Don't know if it makes a difference but its a pre facelift 5spd
