This is our complete E30 Delrin shifter bushing rebuild kit. Pairs great with our Supreme Shifter found here.

Our Garagistic Delrin rear carrier bushing replaces the original rubber bushing found inside 25111220707 (which not only had lots of "give" but is usually neglected and subsequently very worn out). Our upgraded solid bushing eliminates any side-to-side movement of the shifter carrier for a tight feeling shifter.

When you choose the "Add Rear Carrier Assembly" option, we will press your rear carrier bushing into a brand new Garagistic carrier assembly! This option will save you install time by eliminating the need to remove the old rubber bushing from the OEM housing, as well as eliminating the added time needed to install your new carrier bushing in your OEM housing.

The standard Delrin or the available aluminum front shifter bushings fit at the front of the aluminum carrier so NO additional vibration or harshness will be felt after these are installed. For best results, we recommend you upgrade your selector rod to a DSSR and replace your selector joint. We carry late-model E30 selector joints here.

The DSSR for your E30 can be found below:

E30 M3 / E30 325i/is / E30 325e/es - 06/1996+ / E30 318i/is - M42 / E30 24V Swap - G260

Each kit consists of:

  • Garagistic E30 Delrin Rear Carrier Bushing (fits inside 25111220707)
  • OPTIONAL: E30 Rear Carrier Bushing Pre-Pressed into New Carrier Bracket Housing
  • Garagistic Round Shifter Bushings - available standard in Delrin or upgrade to Aluminum (25117519669)
  • OEM shifter cup (25111469397 or 25111220600)
  • OEM b*tch clip (25111221849)

What BMW models does this kit fit?

  • E30 M3
  • E30 325i/is
  • E30 325e/es
  • E30 318i/is

This kit does not fit early sheet metal E30 shifters. Please check compatibility with your VIN at realoem.com or email support@garagistic.com if you are unsure.

Before staring, there is a certain tool that will make your life alot easier when installing these.
Its a "hook tool" Part number 926572 from Harbor Freight. It can be found here: http://www.harborfreight.com/8-inch-radiator-hose-pick-96572.html . You will use this hook tool to remove the "bitch clip". Buy this tool, it makes the job only take a few seconds.

removal of e30 bitch clip

E30 hook tool

  • The trans should be supported by the jack,
  • Lower the jack down until the jack pad is no longer touching the trans then go up slightly to hold it a small amount. you need to do this to allow the bitch clip to rotate back once its un-clipped.
  • With the hook pointed towards the driver side reach above next to the shift carrier and un-clip it.


Next is the removal of 1 13mm nut at the rear of the shift carrier.

  • Now you will have the shift carrier out of the car.
  • You need to remove the front carrier bushing.
  • Its a rubber bushing with a metal sleeve.

Use a exacto knife or a razor blade to cut the end of.

Once you cut the sleeve off you can push the rubber to the other side to remove it.


Now your shift carrier should be like this (or similar).

Now you may press the Garagistic front carrier bushing in.

If you also bought the rear Delrin bushing. The following are the instructions for that.


Installation instructions for Garagistic rear Delrin bushing

Installation requires that the edge on the back of the carrier be grinded down a bit.



You can see the metal file we used in this picture and the Garagistic rear Delrin bushing (can be bought here).


Next step is to burn out the old bushing on the rear carrier bracket.

Hammer in the new Delrin bushing with the chamfered end in first.

It may be a good idea to "dimple" the metal housings after putting the bushing in.This will ensure that the  bushing doesn't slip out the back. Use a punch and hammer for this process.

We pride ourselves in creating products from scratch out of about 75 different types of raw materials ranging from aluminum to Delrin plastic.

Free Shipping Limitations:

Free shipping is only eligible in the contiguous USA. Free shipping only applies to order that meet certain requirements set by us (and can be changed at anytime). Those requirements are currently that an order is over $300 and under the a "Dimensional package weight" of 30lbs. What this means is that roll bars, sway bars, and items we deem oversized do not ship for free. If your order is over this 30lbs rule it will not qualify for free shipping. Free shipping methods are at our discretion and CANNOT BE CHANGED. Most items will either be first class or priority USPS. Free shipping is not valid internationally and this list (but not limited to): Alaska, American Samoa, Micronesia, Guam, Hawaii, Marshall Islands, Northern, Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands. Customers will not be able to pick shipping methods (or overnight) if free shipping is selected. Qualifying order total is based on product subtotal—taxes and non-standard shipping charges are not included as a qualifying cost. You are responsible for non-standard shipping charges such as special handling surcharges and oversize fees (where indicated), Truck Freight fees, expedited shipping, hazardous materials charges, etc. Offer is subject to adjustment due to returns, cancellations, and exchanges. We have the right at anytime to revoke free shipping.

International Buyers:

Please be aware that we offer two shipping methods overseas. First class and priority flat rate envelope. Although first class is much cheaper, USPS seems to lag on delivery and there is no way to track the package once it has been dropped off.

There is a 20% restocking fee for all returns. For custom parts (made to order parts like our engine mounting kits) there is a 35% restocking fee. We do not accept returned customized items such as driveshafts and wiring harnesses.

The flat rate envelope is more money but you will get your gears much much quicker and the tracking number shows the package route! (the default shipping method on this site is this option).

If you want the cheaper route, you must email us telling us this and we will send you a Paypal invoice. We are not liable if you do not get your package with this option as we have no way to track it once it's at the post office.
