Default is it really that simple with the bushings for 5 speed.

Hi All,

I brought Gt into Aamco for free diagnostic. Tech gave me an repair estimate of $515 to replace cable in 5 speed. He did not think changing the bushing for $15 would improve the notchy clutch for gears 2 and 3.

Another smaller transmission shop also felt cable was the issue. I know I asked question last week but has anybody else had similiar experience. I will order the bushing as only $15 and looks very easy to install (located under air filter housing).

Both mechanics kind of chuckled that the notchy clutch can be repaired and made to shift smooth by just replacing with aftermarket bushing.

I appreciate any other feedback.

Regards,

Brian

Yes! Booger Bushings really do work. The stock bushings fall apart after a while because they are not a solid bushing and are made of rubber. Boogers are solid and made of poly. I did just the ones on the transmission end so far and it fixed my problem with the shifter. I will do the shifter end one of these days. DON"T let them sell you a whole new shifter cable assembly.

Any idea if the booger bushings wear out. Have a 2001 PT with Hurst Shifter since almost new. Has 134000 miles on it and wants to jump out of 1st and reverse. Where can you get the bushings? Thanks

The Boogers do work-- and they'll last forever.

Thumbs up Re: is it really that simple with the bushings for 5 speed.

Hello.. I'm new to the forum and hope someone can help me out.

I've recently been having problems shifting (primarily into 1st and 2nd) on my 06 manual transmission PT and read on a few posts to try replacing the bushings before anything else. The two on the transmission end were easy enough to do and now I'm onto the shifter set. I've already got the center console out and I see where the bushings are but I'm not quite sure how to get them off. Could anyone help me out?

Most just carefully pry them off with a screw driver. Detailed instructions with pics at:
