    Default 205 S3 Gear Linkage measurement or part #

    Hi Guys,

    On the way home last night my car lost all gears but 3rd and 4th... I freaked as I had changed the gearbox oil on Saturday and of course assumed that the gears had spontaneously exploded or something similar

    A quick call to the guys at P504 and they diagnosed it as a dropped gear linkage which proved correct when I got under the car and had a look.

    Unfortunately I assumed that I could just order a gear link rod for a 205 GTi S3, but they now need to know the length of the rod and the width of the two sockets at the ends... Does anyone have this info handy?

    I can measure when I get home tonight, but was hoping to get it back on the road asap.

    Any help much appreciated as always.
    I have attached an image that I pinched from someone else's post to show the rod/socket in question.

    Just in case any one needs a reference at a later stage, the part number is 245452, and it is 126mm adjustable.

    Looks like your car has been giving you a bit of grief lately Hopefully it gets sorted out reasonably quickly.

    Sames - thanks for the good wishes

    I must say that with the new link rod in place it has a significant decrease in the amount of play in the gearshift, and combined with a gearbox oil change on saturday it pretty much feels good as new... for now.

    The rod was only $25, so it's a cheap way to give a better feel to the gear change.
