One of the most neglected bushings on your classic BMW is this little accelerator bushing that connects the throttle linkage under the dash. This can cause a sloppy accelerator feel and at times, squeak when the gas pedal is pushed. The original bushings have been pushed thousands of times. Sure, you can replace it with another OEM unit (part number 35411119016). But even the new units are very soft. Do it once, do it right. by using our Delrin accelerator bushings as a replacement to the stock bushings, this is a permanent fix! Comes with an installation tool, for a simplified install. Lubricate with lithium grease on installation to ensure quiet service for years to come.
Note: We also offer E30 throttle cable bushings, which can be found here, for the ultimate throttle refresh!
Install Note: Must be lubricated on installation. We provide an installation tool for a smooth install process.
