I've done it twice but im unsure if I did it correctly. During my alignment, I don't have a white pin on the side to lock the shifter down. Instead I have a black hook looking thing the tilts up and down. I'm assuming mine is newer maybe?no, it’s your shifter linkage alignment.
You have to lock the shifter in the car as well as lock the trans selector in the engine bay.I've done to twice but im unsure if I did it correctly.

How would I know if it's aligned correctly? I don't have the tool (the 5mm little bar thing to lock the shifter) I used a hex key the 2 times I tried.You have to lock the shifter in the car as well as lock the trans selector in the engine bay.
And yeah as said above - if it’s popping out of gear that’s def. a
Symptom of a very misaligned shifter
i tried that and lost first gear for a second so I redid it and it feels like it was. I ordered the pin from diesel geek.
It's usually never a cost issue just the waiting issueGetting the right tool for the job is usually a good start to any project. Think of this experience next time you’re working on something else that requires a specialized tool. Unless there’s a solid hack for a fix, you’ll usually save time, hassle, and money in the long run.
I got the BMS clutch pedal stop and it actually feels better to take off untill I get nervous about someone tailgating me.. I'm still waiting for the shifter alignment pin.
Love the CFB colour. Would have gotten that if it was available when I got mine.Is there adjustment with the Clutch Pedal Stop, i.e. if I install one, is it possible to mess up and not allow enough pedal travel?
Speaking of tailgaters, my very new '21 GTI SE is being babied for a while for engine break-in, but I was on an empty rural road the other day with a barn-sized SUV on my bumper. I was driving at 5 to 10 MPH above the speed limit and was alarmed at how close this knucklehead was. I decided to uncork the GTI a little and holy smokes, the SUV became a dot in my rear-view mirror. I was amazed at the instant and effortless acceleration that is on tap, even at speed. I think I'm going to love this car. (that's a Cornflower Blue heart)
