Default Passat B6 3rd gear problem

Hey guys, recently I've noticed when I'm accelerating and go to shift from 2nd to 3rd gear its hard to get it to engage or I end up missing it and putting it into 1st gear or 5th gear. I've noticed this problem only occurs when under acceleration as it's perfectly smooth as with all the other gears when not accelerating. What could be the problem? Usually what happens is I accelerate go to change from 2nd to 3rd it doesn't engage right away so it takes me a couple seconds of fiddling with it and then it goes in....This doesn't happen at all when I'm driving normally without hard acceleration.

Anyone? Thinking of changing gear oil first to see if that solves it.

So after researching for a bit I came across a thread on here that suggested to realign the shifter linkages, has anyone done this before or how hard is it to do?

There are videos on youtube for shifter linkage adjustments. Changing the oil wouldn't hurt.
