Manual gear shift cable bushes required 8 months 2 weeks ago #82973

Hi Guys,
I need new bushes for the cable ends on gearbox for an 07 manual. Can anyone hook me up or recommend where to purchase from????
I have turned up a temporary bush on the weekend to get me out of trouble but would like a permanent fix.
The bushes on the shifter end are fine as I removed the console and inspected.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Quite possible your temporary bushes might do the trick.
Try www.bleam.com.au and Allan can deliver via post over a night or two. He definitely has them and for apporx $40 for the 3 bushes, though you may only need to fit the two front ones!
I've used what he supplies a coupe of times and finding they don't last as long as the genuine one (genuine comes with cable complete, so far to expensive that way!) and so I thought next time I use his particular brand which is made out of a black rubber, I may fill the absorbing veins up with a silastic before installing them and it may last much longer. They are easy to fit and at least quickly available.
There is also a solid red Nylathane type called Booga Bush but not sure who supplies them now.

Taa QuicksilverDon. If I'm on my mobile I find it hard to add links so thanks for your part. Plus my fat fingers and aging eyesight doesn't help....lol

Also for assistance in getting them locally I heard if you get the specification of what you need, that Pedders Suspension may have these or at least close to it!.

An update here....

On the weekend I "lost" reverse!
Inspection showed that the polyurethane Booger Bush that I had at the gearbox end of one cable had just decided to part company with the cable, and could not be found.
After pulling out the console as well I saw that the shifter end bush is also RS (after over 400K it's understandable),
so a phone call to Allan at Bleam and 1 day later I have a replacement kit that includes both shifter and gearbox ends;
for $36 (plus $10 for express 1 day post)... good value!
