Gear selector rod / linkage
my astra has a straight rod coming from the gearlever & through the bulkhead. on the 1.4 gearbox, the gear linkage sleeves over the rod.
however, with an F20, the linkage is also a rod... nothing can sleeve over anything else.
i corrected this when i done the conversion by using the old linkage (probably from F13CR) on the F20. I keep wondering if this could be why my gearbox lost 5th gear before all the others went.
what do i do? i've got 2 rods, and no sleeves. (if i place a sleeve over them both the linkage will be way too long)
help me please
should i have a rod with a sleeve on the end coming out of the bulkhead?
