02A Plastic Cable Holder 1J0 711 256
The plastic shift cable holders on 1992 -1999 cable shift VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda cars are one of the weak links in the shift linkage. When they get about 10 years old they tend to get very brittle and develop a hairline crack that makes it harder and harder to get reverse and first gear. Also, the battery is usually mounted directly above this part in the engine bay and if the battery has ever leaked acid onto the cable holder that will greatly hastens the cable holder's demise. Get a new cable holder now before you get locked out of reverse! This factory cable holder purchased from our local VW dealer. The part number on the actual part is 1J0 711 260 but the actual number as per VW is 1J0 711 256.

International shipping: If purchasing alone, you should buy this part locally in your country from a local VAG dealer with part number 1J0711256. We can ship via International 1st Class USPS Shipping to Canada and to most other countries via USPS First Class Package International that has a 1-8 week delivery time due to Coronavirus. We also will not offer assistance with USPS package tracking other than providing you with a tracking number. In these uncertain times we recommend the slightly more expensive but much faster 2-4 day FedEx International Economy® service. FedEx will likely collect local taxes upon delivery. We highly recommend FedEx though if your car is down and you need the parts delivered quickly. Also, for Canada, the new USMCA trade agreement will eliminate taxes and duties on this item.
