So I'm giving my trans a much-needed refresh in my mk4 GTI. I bought new cable ends and the Solid Shifter Bushing Kit from 42 Draft (not necessarily knowing how the bushings installed) but now that I receieved them, I do. I have to cut out part of the rubber/plastic bushing to intall the solid bushings.
Does anybody have any experience with these? Is it worth cutting up new ends or should I just replace the ends with new ones and call it a day?
