My shift linkage is way off from the last repair I had. So, I looked through my bentley about the shift linkage, and I didn't come aross anything about adjusting it. If I just jack the car up, will it be obvious how to adjust it. I would really like 2nd and 4th gear back!

It's simple. On the left side of the transmisson is the linkage. Take a couple of 13mm wrenches under it, loosen the clamp on the rod. Move the lever all the way forward to get park. Have the shifter lever inside the car in park as well, and snug it back down. Don't overtighten it, or it can break........been there, done that. :P

Ok, first, I'm talking about my Bently repair manual, not my Bently. I used to own a Jetta and loved it, but I agree, VW's are kind of a joke sometimes.

Second, this is a 5 speed. Do you know if it's about that easy to adjust and in the same spot?

There aren't any adjustments. You may have some bushings worn out, or something is not secured in the linkage. What was done to your car?
