put the gearstick in between 2nd and neutral and lock in place with a 5.5mm drill bit and to lock the gearbox push down slightly on the shift arm and push the little locking rod (an L shaped type thing) into the gearbox

this locks the transmit ion in service position.

then pull back and twist the locking cable ends a few times to re set the cables and then take out of service position and it should be much better

I tout the Golf R and Rocco R had this so wondered if anyone had the VW part number, fancy OEM rather than putting my VWR one on for a change

Not sure what you meant wit the 5,5mm drill piece.

I locked my gearstick in with a drill bit, but it seemed to be in the wrong place as it was nowhere near a neutral position and after adjusting the cables at the box end, I coudn't get gears 1,3 and 5.

I removed the drill and faffed a bit with the cables. Seems pretty good, although I was doing a bit of enthusiastic driving and it made 3rd and 5th a bit hard to select under braking and a bit of cornering. I was trying out my xds after switching onto the highest setting.

It transformed the car, a bit like a fwd rally car I used to have with a proper lsd fitted.
