Thanks a lot for this thread!

I was having problem with 5th gear on my 98 Vw Vento TDI, 192,000k miles.
When I found this thread and saw that my gearbox tower also was sloppy as yours, I ordered home new parts from my local dealer, and tried to change this bushing.

Everything worked like a charm, 5th gear is not a problem anymore, and overall the gearbox feels more firm and stable.
I took a couple of pictures that I can show.








Look at that bushing/bearing, not a single ball left.



Final result

Thanks again!
