Fitting a quick shift (now with pics)

An easy mod that will take about 1 hour and make your gear changes smoother and more positive and quicker.
Tools reguired
10mm socket extension bar and rachet.
2x 12mm spanners (rachet spanners would be ideal if you have them).



remove the rear section of the centre console by gently lifting up and disconnect the electrical plug

unscrew the gear knob anti clockwise until it disengages from tne thread, and gently lift the front console section upwards by the inside of the gaiter recess to reveal the frame.

undo the 4 screws with the 10mm socket.
Now comes the fiddly bit
take your 12mm spanners under the car and undo the nut on the lower bar on the passenger side,(sited horizontally) a large flat washer with a D shaped hole will come off too, pull the bar off its mount to the left.
next undo the vertical screw and nut in the top bar, that goes into the gearbox and remove the screw.

By pulling the assembly forward the bracket on the rear need not be touched, the shaft will pull out of the rubber guide/damper.

now back in the car the old assembly can be lifted out and the new one fed in.

Reassemble in the reverse order in which it came out, slide the back end into the rubber bush.
Slide the shift top bar over the shaft protruding from the box and replace the screw and nut.
Slide the lower bar on from the left, fit the washer with the D shaped hole and nut.
thats it from the outside, replace the 4 screws in the frame, place the front section of the console back on and screw the gearknob back on.
Reconnect the plug in the rear section and push gently down.
Go play!

Is the quick shift any benefit, does it improve gear change for everyday driving :?:
