  • Oh dear. At least it was cheap.

    I bought this for my buggy as whilst the standard gearstick was working great, lifting your leg off the throttle in reverse (LHD) was a bit of a squeeze for my knee between stick and steering wheel. I hoped the reduced travel of the stick would help this. It did this excellently. Justkampers fitting video was great. But I spent about an hour driving round the block going through the gears and adjusting it. Every time I thought I had it right, it'd bounce off reverse going into 2nd. It was a joy to remove it, refit the standard stick with absolutely no adjustment, and snick into the gear I want every time. It might well be that the problem is wear somewhere else in the system,or that I'm a numptie, but this did not work for me. It obviously does work well for other people and I had high hopes for it. But I was glad to remove it and will look at putting a bend in the lever instead.

  • worthwhile

    We still have some things to do to the gear linkage but the shifter has made the gear change easier, less travel in the stick and for the minimal cost it is certainly worth a try if you are having problems with the gear travel. It took next to no time to fit too

  • Excellent and great value product, let down by inaccuracy in the manufacture.

    The alloy shifter plate has an indent that is supposed to sit on top of the steel base plate. The cutout on the base of mine didn't allow the base plate to fit inside, so I had to grind a small amount from the steel plate in quite a few places to get a comfortable fit.

    That said, for just £6 you can transform the vague VW gear change and reduce the gear lever travel considerably. Gear linkage bushes do need to be in good condition to get full benefit. Well worth checking and changing these at the same time.
