Gear shifter bushings was created by Michael-c
Hi, I recently replaced every bush, bearing, mount and uj under my y plate manual m13a hardtop. I still had a vibration under load. After another good look and poke about I realised I'd missed the gear shifter mounts. 2 small square rubber bushings, both sheared. Rear engine mount had gone ages ago so makes sense that these would be shot also.

Whilst in halfrauds getting new exhaust rubbers I saw a rover mini rubber mount. Looked just right for the job so I got 2 and this morning put them in and vibration gone.

If your in need they fit well in every regard and are a fraction of the price quoted by Suzuki for the square ones.

Gear shifter is now as stable as my much newer vvt swift. Not a porridge stirrer anymore.

Chucked packaging away. Search halfords exhaust bushings, its the small round black rubber one with a thread sticking out either side. Looks like a round version of the square stock Suzuki ones. Thread size and thickness is the same as stock.

Mega improvement after fitting them. Easy job too.

If your gearstick is at all wobbly or tricky to get gears this is worth doing.

Looks very similar, but not as neat. Should fit a mini classic (upto 1990's, not the BMW look-a-like thing). Its about 12mm face to face and has M8 threads either side. Some spring washers would be a wise addition when fitting ;-)

Going to have a bash at this tomorrow, I've been thinking about a gearbox rebuild but it might just take a couple of mounts to tighten it up.... I'll use nylocs and lock washers, see what happens. I'll be chuffed with a fivers worth of bits as opposed to a few hundred for the gearbox kit.

Thanks.....

Top find! Need to replace rear engine/gearbox mount next week, so for less than a fiver it'd be rude not to do this at the same time
