  1. Since the process to remove the shifter cable bushings will be the same for all cars we will depict that. The method or process to remove the shifter cables from the car will depend on the specific model and application. You do not need to remove the shifter cables to install the new bushings. However to MUST remove them from the transmission cable bracket. Most applications will have spring C clips that hold them in place. Or they will be bolted to the bracket. You must remove them from the bracket so they can be moved freely. If you do not remove them from the OEM brackets, you risk bending and ruining the shifter cable. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO BEND THEM.

  3. The new Hybrid Racing bushing comes pre-assembled in the package. You must remove the center bushing before installing it in the shifter cable end ring. This process is very easy. Hold the bushing with the Hybrid Racing logo facing upwards. Use your fingers and rotate the center bushing so that it aligns with the large portions of the delrin ring.

    • Use your fingers and rotate the center bushing so that it aligns with the large portions of the delrin ring.

    • Push the aluminum bushing outward, separating it from the Delrin case.

  4. The tabs of the Delrin bushing must be compressed so it can clip into the cable end. Be sure to align it correctly, squeez the tabs and slide the bushing into the cable end. You will hear the bushing "snap" into place. Once that happens, the installation is complete.

  5. Similar to the previous step, the main bushing has four tabs that must be depressed before sliding it into the cable end. Make sure you have the shifter cable facing the correct way. The tabs that get depressed will face down on the shifter cable. So be sure you slide the outer ring through the top section of the cable. Slide the ring into place and make sure you hear it snap.

  6. Even though the bushing and Delrin ring are very smooth, we recommend adding a bit of Super Lube grease with PTFE to the center bushing. This allows the bushing to move even smoother. Once applied to the bushing, spread it out evenly. This allows the bushing to move even smoother. Once applied to the bushing, spread it out evenly.
