Motronix Shortshifter Installation

Hi,

I am planning on purchasing this in the next week or so and I'm wondering if anyone has put one in themselves. Is this truly a one hour job and can I do it all from inside the cabin or will I need to jack the car and get in from underneath ?


Any comments would be appreciated !
Thanks

Hi-

I am not sure what the Motronix kit includes, but 90% of shiffter swaps (if your changing the bearings etc) require alot of it to be done from under the car. The swaps are pritty straightforward. If you have any problems removing the "POS WHITE LOCKING THING" that goes around the ball of the shift lever, let me know, I know a few tricks to make it easier for ya. Good Luck!

What kind of shifter is this? The entire kit or just the lever?

If it's just the lever it shouldn't take you more than 30 min with the proper tools. You will need to get under the car though to remove a "C" clip which connects the lever to the rest of the transmission.

Removing the shifter boot, all the rubber and crap is easy. Actually removing the shifter lever is next to impossible. You will need a special angled screw driver which is almost 90 degrees at the bottom. This will be used to yank the shifter lever out. After you've done that the hardest part is over, everything else is pretty much straight foward.

Yeah Charlie (Bimmersport) has this tool. Just talk to him about it, he can get you good deals on the shifter as well.
