Frank Bauer has rebuilt a Type 44 shift 
linkage.   In   http://www.audifans.com/archives/1999/08/msg00183.html  he 
lists the parts he used and describes how at the same time he produced a 
shorter-throw shifter lever.  You might contact 
him   <frankbauer at thevine.net>    about where in the linkage your problem 
might be and how you might tackle it.  We'd all be interested in what you 
find out, too.
