2005.5 & 2006 MK5 Jetta with 1.9 TDI diesel
2005.5 - 2014 Jetta with 2.5 liter gasoline five cylinder engine

2019 MK7 Jetta S (6 spd for US and Canada) with 1.4 Turbo gas engine
Also fits MK6 and MK7 Golf with 1.4 Turbo engine with 6spd

This shifter also fits Euro-spec VAG cars with a MQ250 transmission (5 speed or 6 speed, click link to see picture so you can check your stock shifter parts for compatibility)

This kit is also great for fixing the poorly designed plastic VW shifter lever 1K0 711 202K that was equipped on 2008 and newer 5 Speed cars. These levers tend to seize up in the aluminum transmission pivot tube and keep you from being able to shift. Our Sigma shifter replaces all of the stock parts with sturdy metal parts that will last forever. If you are interested in testing a new, less expensive solution to the seized plastic lever issue and do not need or want shorter throw shifting, please email us at for details. We have a forever solution.
