Ball and socket on top of the gearbox on the "T" end of the selector rod,the socket has split in two and fallen appart.Cost about £7 from VW but not easy to replace unless you have done it 100 times or more and have the knack

Had the same problem on my last vehicle (VW Sharan) not sure if it works on a T4 but my temporary repair of 2 x cable ties looped around and loosely holding on cap worked perfectly for 30,000 miles!

My t4 did the same, got the ball end and seals etc from German & Swedish autos cost me £15 to replace the lot, was a real pain ended up using a vice and brute force to pop the new seal balls on place.
