I have a 98 VW New Beetle 2.0 with a 5 speed transmission. I backed out of my driveway and put it into first and my shifter handle went, for lack of a better word, limp. Any suggestions on a quick fix?

I took a hack saw and cut the end off the cable. It was pretty smooth, so I didn't need to sand it or grind it. The end slid right into the repair block. I did have to loosen and adjust it a couple of times to get the throw of the shifter just right. I also used thread lock on the set screws on the repair block.

Sorry it took so long for me to reply...I was on vacation and away from a computer for a while.
