E30 DELRIN ROUND SHIFTER BUSHING KIT

This is our complete delrin shifter bushing rebuild kit. It features our round shifter bushings, OEM shifter cup, delrin rear carrier bushing, and bitch clip.  Our Garagistic delrin carrier bushings replace the original rubber bushing (which not only had lots of  "give" but is usually neglected and degrades over time). These eliminate any side-to-side movement of the aluminum shifter carrier.

These Delrin shifter bushings fit at the front of the aluminum carrier so NO additional vibration or harshness will be felt.

This does not fit early sheet metal E30 shifters.

  • 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 unclipped.
  • With the hook pointed towards the driver side reach above next to the shift carrier and unclip it.

Should look like this when its done.

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.
