    Hi all.
    I have the old metal rod gear linkage and wondered if it is possible to swap to the cable linkage?

    Is there another gearbox that can be fitted to the 1.4 16v MK4 golf?.
    I know it's not my usual 1.8t or 2.8 but I have fallen in love with this easy to run 1.4 for now.

    as its a small block not so easy, iirc there may be a polo or lupo one which goes, but not really worth the hassle tbh.

    fix up the rod linkage with new bushes and it'll be tip top

    I thought that might be the case. Ye I will just buy new linkage.
    Thank you for the info.
