I bought a short shifter from Bren at apex performance and it was only today that I had chance to fit it. I fitted it but the gear change linkage rod hits the body work. I removed the plate and was ready to cut the section out as I knew they would hit but its hitting the actual car body. It wouldnt even into gear properly so had to remove it and refit the stock one.
Has anyone had this before and what was the solution? Its a 2002 bugeye.
Are there any other short shifters that I could get that someone has definitely managed to fit properly?
This is the link to the original one I bought to show you what it looks like.
No mate, mines just a standard stick. The perrinn adaptor fits over the OEM stick no problem its when you then have to remove the bushings and little tube thingy from the stock lever and transfer them (as shown in those instruction) its way too wide and won't fit. Even without the blue bushings, its still too wide.
If possible can someone measure the width (the way the bolt goes through) on their CDF shifter so I can see if it'll fit.
Can someone quickly measure the pivot point on their CDF one, the direction the M8 bolt goes through, it'll only take 5 mins if someone could, if you're not sure which part I mean then I can take a picture of my stock shifter if that'll help.
