Has anyone done this and if so, are you willing to write a how-to?

If it's anything like for the 4-speed auto, the it's easy.

Turn car on and shift into neutral.

Turn car off and engage parking brake.

Pull the collar of the shifter down

Push button in and pull

Done

You saved me a quoted $175.95CDN in Shop Fees (estimated by a volkswagen dealer in town) with this info. You see, my Shift Knob shattered (really) due to extreme temps (-45Celcius) and clumsy shifting. So I ordered the stock replacement, and was quoted $175.95CDN to install. I'm thinking, no friggen way.

Followed your directions.

Installed, works.

Thanks man! How can I repay?

(Yes, it's out of warranty)

Unfortunately none of this helps Sue since she has a DSG...

Especially since the question was asked on "04-30-2006, 10:03 AM"

But I'm sure the handle should come off about the same.

damn... didn't notice that...

I always just hit "new posts" when I log on, and just assume they are current, and that someone hasn't bumped up a three year old thread

Actually, the DSG has a version of the Tiptronic and the above instructions worked for me as well.

Glad it worked for someone else.

I have a DSG and the instructions are the same.

Be careful not to use too much force when pulling the button out of the handle as the button can come completely out.

If you pull the button completely out you can't simply push it back in as there is a spring-loaded lever that needs to be pushed up out of the way. Best way to get at the spring-loaded lever is to remove the T-handle from the shifter post.
