Anybody fitted the Gear mounting bush?

The one underneath the van below the gear stick , small black square bush with an Orange insert/bearing.

Been underneath the Van today and had a tough time trying to figure out how to get the bloody thing in!

Can’t seem to find any tutorials other than the front selector round bushes.

Any steer appreciated!

Figured this one out myself.

Had to drop the Fuel tank.

Followed a thread on here how to unbolt the straps, was pretty straight forward.

Just needed more room to work with as i could not get my hands behind the gear support shaft due to restricted space ( tank in the way).


Getting the ball bush on the T piece on the gear box selector was a pain in the ass! ( no special tools or clamps so was achieved by the method of leaving the bush in boiling water for a few mins then a massive hand press on! - 5 attempts later! T: )


Mission complete - Selector Bush replaced, support gear bearing bush replaced! - Feels much tighter with no gear stick wobble and all gears are now there - even 5th that was missing lol :)
