I have a polo 6n2 TDI same gearbox as Lupo TDI (correct me if I'm wrong)

The counterweight is very wobbly in all directions.

It is tightened adequately.

I'm assuming it could be either of 2 things

1. The counterweight it self is stripped

2. The shift tower is stripped

Is the tower it self easy to remove?

Remove the cables etc then the 3 bolts and the tower just lifts up? nothing going to fall out or anything I need to be wary of?

you need to learn about the wahey tower bearing theory.

alternatively google audi a2 gearbox weight and you will learn lots.

so... 

I take it is an 02J shifter and is not actually the shaft that is stripped, but shifter tower bushings degrading allowing the play.

So, either find replacement part or mess about removing bearings which people say can be a pain.

i once used a section of hose to replace the bearing.

it's honestly not as hard as it sounds, just a broken plastic shell bearing.

Its a slightly different set-up on the TDI, parts as follows:

Shift Tower (number 8 in the pic) is 02R 301 230 M - £162.42 inc vat

Selector Housing (number 1 in the pic) - 02J 301 231 B - £111.54 inc vat

Supposedly both in stock at VW

 

On the 2nd pic, assuming yours in an AMF, the weight (49 in the pic) is 6X0 711 051 C - £43.12 inc vat, also allegedly in stock at VW

the weight will only seem wobbly because the plastic bearing in the tower has broken.
