Default Complete Shifter assembly installation

Been a while since I've actually worked on my car (been working on friends for the past year) but I've been sitting with parts for my RS and I'm sick of having the sloppy shifting there, so I'm finally installing the parts.

What I need to know is the best way to approach the installation of the complete shifting assembly (not just the shifting rod that is detailed in the mods section) and what I should expect to remove. I'm the only one of my friends in town at the moment, I don't start my new job til next Tuesday, and I'm obscenely bored, so I'll be doing this alone (but I don't have to drive anywhere til next week, and even then I have a backup vehicle.)

Any hints would be nice.

although i didn't do it for an RS, but it should be the same in general.

my advice is to take out the heat shield just above the shifter linkages. this will SAVE you a lot of pain, trouble and cuts.

i started off with WRONG tools... get a 13mm open head-wrench and a small adjustable wrench. these are very essential in the tight spots there.

basically unbolt the big roung thing first, then save the spring and plate, and move that thing out of the way, then unbolt the other linkages and screws and it's pretty straightforward. provided that you have the right parts and right tools.
