Well sorted Col. Good job.
That's why I asked for a pic. Mine's a 2003 and the gears selectors aren't to the left of the air filter box. Was also confused by the stud on the body. That must be the actual gear selector of the gearbox!
Any adverse conditions if not fitted...lol um no gears...lol
Chris is this car drivable?

I have replaced the missing bush with something I constructed .. and hopefully that should hold for a while. Yes the car is drivable and as of yet ,I have only driven for about 75K so all is very new to me. Even in that short time I noticed the shifting back from 5th to 4th was a bit of hit and miss....but now after seeing the video that was posted ...looks like I'll have to investigate the second bush a bit deeper in the guts ( just checked ..the other bush is badly worn but will last a little longer.)
Thanks again
Chris...

The video shows a model with the air-box and mounting hardware completely removed.
There is no difference from 2001 to 2010, all are 5 speed manual Getrag transmission/differentials.
The cables are attached to the body of the transmission housing,
and when the bushes wear out gears can normally still be selected, but one has to have a bit
of 'fine feeling' and luck.

In the still pic on Col's video the left hand cable is the actual gear selector cable, the smaller right hand one
determines whether it's 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, or 5th/reverse.
Depending on specific use, left hand (larger) bushing will wear out after 150,000kms, smaller after about 350,000kms.
The bushes on the inside of the car at the shifter end of the cables are the same size as the smaller one under the bonnet,
but should most likely never wear out. Best replacement is from Booger Bushes in the USA, polyurethane set for about AUD40.

Thanks again for your answers Gents....The thing that disturbs me is that the previous owner let the car get to this condition.....the left bushing in the white nylon/plastic ring was long gone...so the 8mm pin was just sloping around in the 21 mm ID ring. and the other one is also just about shot. So you can understand that shifting was a bit hit and miss....and reverse was sort of ..I'll have to walk.
I've made some running repairs that will keep me going for a while...with a set of "Dorman 14044" on the way from Amazon
Chris....
