For a more direct and better gear shifting


The easy to install VW Beetle shift rod bushing provides less shift rod clearance and therefore more direct shifting. A broken shift rod bushing is often the cause for a rattle of the shift lever and spongy shifting.

With this two-piece bushing you don't have to remove the complete gearshift rod, which saves you a lot of time and money, with higher stability ...




From now on you will receive an even more stable and reliable shift rod bushing, so you can individualize your driving feeling as you like it - for your even more beautiful beetle rides!


Due to a new, semi-flexible material, the bushing is now not only much more robust and stable, it is also optimally designed to accept a different degree of tightening of the grub screw and therefore to create an individualized driving experience!


In addition, this shift rod guide is now much more resistant to contact with petrol or other substances that are usual in the automotive sector.


You will also receive the corresponding shift rod clutch, which must often also be replaced, so that your shift rod is held optimally and runs smoothly again.


Now get your improved shift rod bushing for more passionate and enjoyable rides with your favourite vintage car!
