      Sloppy shifter?
      probably need to replace the main shift rod bushing, but since these are basically no longer available, you can get an after market replacement part that is about a million times better from here.
      http://www.4crawler.com/Diesel...aring
      there is also a guy who sells a hybrid bushing on ebay that is made from a mk3 bushing with a delrin insert inside of it. thats what I have and it rules.

      everything you ever wanted to know about transmissions can be found here. http://www.brokevw.com

      and if you are looking for replacement parts, set up an account at http://www.vagcat.com where you can get exploded diagrams and part numbers of everything VW.
      (or just login with my account, vwvortex/vwvortex )
      then take those part numbers to http://www.worldimpex.com where you can get prices and availability of them.
      but for really old stuff, your best bet might be the salvage yards..

      ^ but it would be so very helpful if they were...
      for instance 1, 2, and 3. esp 2 and 3.
      what are the most likely maintenance problems? ive already gatheres there are struggles with the fuel pump, im told 16vs tend to run hot, the hatches leak and stuff like that.
      first upgrades? - there are a few performance faqs but what are a few key weaknesses that are quickly and easily adressed to yeild an efficiently running slightly more powerful, better handling car? say first three upgrades and what to avoid specifically (heard mixed reviews about power modules)

      I believe the topics listed that are not links were included in the list to prompt others to provide information on those subjects wherever they could.
      And so: I have written another DIY to help troubleshoot shifting issues.

      just thought I would add a couple pictures I took of my rocco cluster the other day. the plastic circuit board on the back of the cluster has some print on it around the plugs that you cant really see unless you take them off.

      this is bound to be useful for Someone... (it was for me)

      Prothane is probably one of the more common brand names out there for those. You can get them at pretty much any VW tuning place.

      GermanAutoParts sells them, as does NGP, and numerous other places.
      Deal with it.
