Access to gear lever gate.

Recommended Posts

I am about to try and improve the gear change on my 84 turbo. 

I'm reading with interest all the cross shaft cable posts but have a really simple question.... how do you get to whatever gate etc is under the gear lever? I think a part of the problem is there.

My red leather interior is in very good condition and never been apart before.

Tricks/ tips really appreciated

There are several bits of trim or insulating devices beneath the leather puff. I'll attach a PDF Service Parts Manual for reference, see page 103 for the interior bits, further along you'll find the Transmission section for gearchange mechanism details.

I did the job on my S1 over the summer. I messed up the trim pulling it off. I have it all back together except the trim. I used Velcro to hold down the arm rest so I can at least access the choke cable without pulling it all apart.
