Not sure what your doing here?
1. Do you need to dismantle the linkage, is it seized up
2. Are you just refitting the assembly to the car.
3. some other problem.

So is it the original linkage or is it from a different vehicle.

It's not something like the linkage has moved on motor making more difficult to get back in?
I can't see how it won't line up as it came out of the car ok?

when you removed it you say it was really tight to get out,don't suppose you could have bent it could you?

I am not familiar with mark 1 and can't really make out picture on phone but is it possible to loosely fit one side and then be able to manoeuvre the other side in?
