FOR VAUXHALL VECTRA B C F23 GEAR SHIFT LEVER BOX UNIT BUSHING REPAIR REPLACEMENT PART NUMBER: X8R0078


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It is common for the nylon bush within the gear shifter unit on vehicles with F23 gearboxes to wear and fail leading to excess movement in the gear stick shifter; making it difficult to select gears. Our replacement bush allows you to resolve this issue at a fraction of the cost of a complete gear stick shift mechanism. 


SYMPTOMS OF FAULT

The gear stick feels loose / sloppy and it can be difficult to shift in to gear. Typically Reverse or 1st gear is hard to select or requires force. Crunching gears can also be a symptom of this fault. 


THE PROBLEM

THE NYLON BUSH WITHIN THE GEAR SHIFT MECHANISM WEARS CAUSING EXCESS MOVEMENT AND GEAR SHIFT FAULTS. 

Within the gear shifter unit is a nylon plastic bush which rotates on a ball joint. Over time the soft nylon wears leading to excess movement on the ball joint which manifests itself as excess play in gear selection. This excess play allows the gearstick to move up and down inside the mechanism leading to a loose feeling when selecting gears or can even make it difficult to select certain gears. Previously the only solution to this issue was to replace the entire gear shift assembly as the bush was not available as an individual part.


THE SOLUTION

FIT OUR REPLACEMENT GEAR SHIFT BUSH AND ELIMINATE THE EXCESS PLAY IN THE GEAR SHIFTER UNIT 

We now manufacture a replacement bush so you can replace just the component that fails without having to replace the complete gear shift mechanism. Our part fits in exactly the same way as the original and will return the gear shift to original condition with sharp gear changes and no excess play.

Our bush is a precision injection moulded part (we are not currently aware of any others offering this) this means the part will fit perfectly and is the same fit as the OE part. In our experience the 3D printed and machined substitute parts are tricky to fit and often snap whilst trying to fit. 

Our side to side movement rod also included in the kit (these can wear too) is also moulded to the perfect shape, printed or metal parts do not fit perfectly and can cause wear.
