A repair kit for vehicles with a 12mm Gear stick. Please read the following to make sure youre getting the right part...
Please be aware that there are 2 sizes of gear lever.
As a rule of thumb, the air cooled vans have a 12mm shaft, the water cooled vans have a 14mm shaft.
Some early CS engined Diesel vans will also have a 12mm shaft.
To be specific about things...
Vehicles up to chassis number
WV2 ZZZ 25Z C 200 000 Have a 12mm shaft.
WV2 ZZZ 25Z D 000 001 Have a 14mm shaft
Now, as usual, it's not that simple! seems like VW ran the 2 diameter shafts along side each other for a little while, so, from 25D 000 001 to 25D 051 380 AND you have special order S799 (injection engines 1.6i and 2.0i) then you also have a 12mm shaft.
We think the best idea is to measure your gear-lever before you buy if you are in any doubt, these vehicles are getting old now and will have no doubt passed through many hands and you have no idea what the previous owners have done in the past.
We find the simples way to measure the diameter of your gearlever is to simply use a 12mm open ended spanner, if it fits over the shaft it's 12mm, if it doesn't it's 14mm.
Fitting should take no longer that 20 minutes, really easy DIY job to freshen up your gear change.
Job will take a little longer on JX engined vans as the whole gearlever box assembly has to be removed from the vehicle and the linkage parts replaced on the bench.
