AM. You can also make a better bushing by filling the stock one.
Much better than either the replacement OEMroute or the bolt, IMO. Rip it apart, clean and paint it. Then fill with PL/3M Polyurethane filling.
Around 6/tube. Aug 19, This is why you should replace shifter bushings. The white crescent shaped piece in the picture should actually be 1/2 of a 2 piece"circular" bushing for the shift rod. As you can see, not much of it was left after 50 years! The balance of the bushings disintegrated as i removed them.
Much better now especially with the help of this forum. Jun 26, Joined Jun 14. 32, Posts. #15 Jun 25, Encompass1 said: i had mine replaced this spring at a MB dealership because they quoted me a price ofeach (two req.) andlabor couldn't pass that up. that number. Oct 03, 1. Remove Shifter bezel.

May 14, So i had Short Shift and the transmission bushing done 1 year ago with no problem, just today, i install the shifter base bushing, and can't even slot into 2nd gear, i can slot into 1, 3,4,5, and 6 no problem.
I have done the Shifter Cable adjustment, with the yellow tab slot into the line, still can't get it into 2nd. Checked the battery tray and i have enough clearance, so nothing is.
