Hi everyone,
as you will see i am brand new here and i am 'proud' owner of an audi a3 2.0 TDI 2006 with a worn gearstick

Ok i will get to the point, i know that the issue is a worn ball joint (is that what its called?), well at least the plastic surrounding the ball.

I will try and outline what i am on about with a picture off the web, i would like to know if anyone else has had this issue and whether i could find a replacement joint that i could fit instead of replacing the whole thing with gear linkages included?

i haven't found anything useful on the Internet as of yet hence why i am here, i have many more things i need help with in the future but this is enough for now.
