pneumatic actuation system

Just a guess, but didn't Citroen have a pneumatic lifting system way back in the 70s? Maybe something like that.

Gassenposition = (gear shift) gate position

The Gassenposition refers to which "lane" or "channel" the gearstick is in (first gear generally being diagonally opposite from reverse, for example).
No idea what "Gassenaktuatorik" is, however.
