Gear linkage rebuild kit

Post by highrise » Thu Mar 21, 2024 4:44 pm

Hi,

I've just replaced my shifter with a solid unit from JHM.

The old shifter ball joint was worn and disintegrating. The upgrade has made a difference.

I still have some lateral slop in the gear shift.

Doing some research this can be due to wear at the other end of the linkage.

Is there a rebuild kit for the linkage?

Has anyone done this? Looks difficult to get at without removing the whole linkage.

Cheers

I've done a bit more research, I'll dump it here in case it's useful.

I think the part number is:
8e0798151b

Has anyone replaced this with the linkage in the car?

Thanks
