Default New short shift doesn't fit - any ideas?

Hi guys,

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.

Any help would be much appreciated.

They do hit, but all you have to do is bend it slightly.
I have the CDF one and when I set it up, it set it just slightly lower to not hit.

Yep, I have pm'd him but not sure what he can do unless he can take it back. If not then I may have to try and sell it on and get something else?

Bought a second hand one of these and that doesn't fit. Its too wide to be bolted to the linkage rod. Its starting to get me down now

I've decided to go for a CDF one now, but need to know if it'll fit?

On the one that I got from Bren, it had two lengths of spacers so it was useable on the ones that had both the narrower and wider linkage connections. Does that make sense?

Any one got any ideas if you could let me know asap, plus I've got this Perrin one for sale if any one wants it?

Cheers

Had a look at Perrin instructions, is it that yours has the optional factory short shifter already? http://www.perrinperformance.com/sha.../pspinr200.pdf

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.

Took a picture of the perrin one and its about an inch and half, just under, but my stock one measures just over inch and quarter.

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.

You'll be doing me a massive favour.
