Finally there is a high performance replacement for your stock slider or "friction piece" as VW calls it. Our CNC machined slider snaps onto your stock side to side bell crank's 10mm ball with a very gratifying SNAP! The tolerance on the Super Slider is so tight that there is no slop whatsoever between the 10mm ball and the groove in the front to back shift lever it slides into. This part will take out all of the side to side slop in the union between the front to back and side to side shift bracket. It will last forever, too! Fits all 2000 - 2010 stock five speed or six speed New Beetle shifters including other manufacturer's short shift kits. Does not fit the Sigma Shifter as our shifters are equipped with custom high performance sliders.
