Unhappy 94 Golf Linkage issues in transmission arm

Attached is an image of the same manual transmission I have.

I have replaced the entire linkage assembly with the it from GermanAutoParts.com

I have a few pins left over but unsure where they go but at any rate what I have found both before and after replacing the linkage is on the transmission that RED CIRCLED part sometimes gets "bound up" where I can't get it to go in the direction of the arrow. (allows me to hit gears 3 and up)

There is also a nut you can remove (Green Circled) that shows you the inner are a bit.

Is there a way to kind of free up this arm a little so it doesn't get stuck?

It makes me think that the two pins I have in my GAP linkage kit may be for in there somewhere.
