Default Gear selector pin failed.

Ok so today lost gear selector.
Turns out this small pin bolt has lost thread on the metal polybushing thread looks ok on pin.

Wondering what u recommend as fix.
1 drill hole through gear box selector rod put bolt nut on.

2. Drill and tap housing of polybush to m8 and i can turn new bolt with tapped end.

Just buy a new coupling, they're only a few quid
Try to get the black rubber version rather than red urethane

That's a repro coupling made from the finest chineseum. They are awful quality, had one myself once.

Get a genuine VW coupler (even a used genuine one, Megabug maybe ?) and if you like, push your red urethane blocks into it before fitting.

Your bolt looks like a genuine one as it has the hole through so you can lockwire it to prevent it loosening.

Hard to say really just by a photo. Try VW heritage, I think they stock genuine ones.
