This is is often in very poor condition, and likely in need of replacement. 
 
Changing this and the shift coupler is a great project to do in your driveway, it's cheap and your car shifts like it's supposed to.

Make sure that if you have the shift rod out, use some scotch bright or a media blaster, to remove any rust on the shift rod where it slides in the bushing. 
 
We have seen people put the effort in to put new bushings in, but then push a rusty and corroded shift rod through, which tears up the brand new bushing in short order. 
 
The smoother you can make the shift rod the better. Use a good grease.
 
Note:
 
Fits Kombi's up to 1967
