First Gear Getter for 2008 and newer VW and Audi


Has your 2008 or newer VW lost first or fifth gear?

We've been reuniting VW owners with their first gears for years! Repair the sloppy, damaged or missing relay ball on your year model 2008 through 2019 MK5 and MK6 shift lever with our innovative bell crank relay socket. When your relay ball bushing breaks you will find that it is hard to get into reverse or first gear without pushing the shifter stick very hard to the left. You might even readjust your shifter to enable you to get first and second gears but that makes it darn near impossible to get fifth gear. The dealer alternative to this repair kit is to buy a new shifter shaft assembly from the dealer for around $100 and then drop the exhaust, heat shield and shifter box to install it. To install this part you only have to remove the center console* inside the cabin and glue the part onto the aluminum tang on the left of the shifter stick. A YouTube Video showing the process is coming soon. Guaranteed for as long as you own your car!
