Where to find a quickshift for a MK2 Scirocco

Post by gplategt » Thu Feb 16, 2012 3:10 pm

Where will I find one that will fit?

On Ebay they are down as MK2 Golf and MK2 Scirocco being the same, I know from using a MK2 gearbox before that they are different.
I tried the MK2 Golf GTi weighted shift and it looked too short.
Has any on bought one from Ebay, and did it work ??

You want one advertised as a Mk1 golf shortshift.

These are the shapes you are looking for:

or

alternatively, have a look at the Missinglinkz website - http://www.4crawler.com/Diesel/ForSale/ ... kage.shtml

Look at the Short Throw Shifter section on this page. You can make one yourself in a few mins without complicated tools.

Also have a look on here on this link kindly supplied by MacColl.

This is an alternative method.

The position of the sliding part determines the % of the adjustment.
Good luck.

Yes, you most likely have a mk3 Golf item which will fit a mk2 but not mk1/Scirocco.

Same as the one I got for mine,you need to keep an eye on the allen head bolt on the bottom of the relay shaft,as it can work itself loose over time,the standard one has a nut on the end


6 point cage,Koni`s,lower front brace,rear brace,goodridge hoses,4,2,1,supersprint back box,k+n,kent gs2h,vernier,skimmed and ported head,alloy fuel tank.catch tank,Short shift ,9A soon.

Sorry, I meant it will fit a mk2 Golf - I should have been a bit clearer.
