this is odd as shit... i adjusted the shifter linkage about 100 damn times (well both of them)... i can cycle all gears like normal.. when i push down into reverse the relay lever on the trans goes down and clicks like it should according to diesel geeks youtube video.. but when i let off the clutch.. it pulls forward?
so i cycled all gears... literally all gears including reverse try to pull forward??
i replaced both shifter linkage ends too.. heres the video i used..
shity that happened to my dub and took it to my mechanic and he fixed it for me

see thats whats fukn strange.. Mine works / looks just like that.. identically.. the problem is when you push down on the shifter in the car to go over to reverse.. the push cable.. the one you can see pushing the relay lever around.. doesnt seem to push far enough to fully engage reverse.. we tried adjusting and adjusting and im all but out of threads now on the adjustment (well not threads but the lips / edges on the cable the teeth grab from the spring / boden ends)...
but if your outside the car and grab that lever and put into reverse that way.. it puts it into reverse.. the car goes backward.. but if ur in the car while someone does that.. the shifter goes into third???????????????????

i FOUND THE PROBLEM! well actually SCIROCKIN did.. but YEAH.. i think we are on to something.. thanks fubar for your video.. it seems like my top cable is pushing through the bracket.. and the bottom one mimics yours completely.. therefor.. its clicking over.. as it should to go in reverse.. but its not pushing down to engage it into reverse.. if that makes sense?
theres a little some sort of clip.. where the cable comes into the bracket.. my top cable just pushes through the shifter cable bracket on top of the trans.. anyone know what this thing is called or what it looks like.. anything?
