Sourcing Gear shifter bushes set

Post by Nobby » Mon Sep 23, 2019 10:40 pm

Ok so it’s not my car and it’s actually only a 1.8t fwd, but I need to source some bushes for a mates 2002 A3 that’s got a dodgy gear shift.

I’ve already reset the linkages which worked for a week, but now he’s having trouble getting into reverse anywhere. Before I start prising off the gearbox and checking any selector forks I thought i’d Swap out some of the bushes first. Think the side the forwards and backwards ones are ok but side to side has some play.

There are a few random places on eBay that do some but it’d be nice if i could source a complete kit and change as many as I want (ones at gearstick end and on top of gear selector. I know they are common in VAG cars too. This car also has a 5 speed.

Anyone know where I can get some?
