Short Shifter Install

Recommended Posts

Happy Holidays All, Installed short shift kit 99 boxster. A few things.....noticed the metal covers that house the bushings which accept the circlip are notched but didn't see any notches on the shift assembly. They both went in fine although one I had to apply a fair amount of pressure squeezing it in to get the circlip on. The circlip was also very tight and had to be forced on w a screwdriver. The shifter shifts fine but I'm finding laterally from side to side it doesn't spring back to center when in neutral. In hind site I'm thinking maybe I should have removed one of the washers that go between the metal cover and the bushing to free it up a bit. I still might be able to do it through the boot cover. Also, I only installed the set screw and jam nut on one side but there really wasn't any play to pick up anyway. Thanks v

Hi V. Not sure exactly what you are asking here, but I installed the shifter last week and the plastic shift housing definitely had notches that align with the aluminium bushes. They are not easy to see, but you can feel them when you run your finger around the inside of the circular housing where the new bushes go. I suspect if one of yours was tight to fit then you may have inadvertently force fitted it incorrectly. If it is slightly twisted in the housing then it might prevent the shifter springing back to neutral. 
You also need to back off the set screws before installing otherwise you can end up with an overly tight fit. 
Hope this helps.

Thanks Terry....I did sort it out ..... I think I used thinner washers to free up the play. The ones that came with the kit fit too tightly. V
