Unhappy Mk3 Bushing replacement question.

My VW mk3 will not go into 1st gear at all and 2nd is not to hot either... i have to push it down like im gonna reverse and make sure is doesn't click in to reverse to catch 1st. then pull it out and jam it into 2nd... (it's like a konami code just i don't get 50 extra lives...)

but how to i reach the bushings for it?
do i need to take apart the whole console and shifter rod?
or do i need to go about it some other way?

i think the reason is because my car needed to replace an engine mount.
Since the engine was leaning, it must have worn out the bushing for 1st and 2nd.

just a bit of guidance on what to look for and how to go about it. advice on good bushing or where to buy.

Thanks guys.
