The wife has long complained that it was difficult to get in reverse and the gear lever was a bit loose in it. I thought today I would just lubricate the gearshift. So I took off the cuff by the gear rod and gave the ball on the rod a little silicone and drove through gears to distribute it a bit. Then I could see that the console was giving off a lot and was actually loose. So I dug the console completely free and started looking at where it is clamped. The nut in the opposite reverse was loose. So there was a 5-8mm gap. The other three nuts were tight enough, but the rubber bush that sits in between is way too big so there was a 2-3mm gap. I had no others but I had some o-rings which I then put in the groove on the bush. Put it all back together and now the console is stable and it changes gears much better.

Kent was this an actual failure or had you removed the gearshift previously when soundproofing your Vitara, I know you had a major strip down of your interior but can't recall how involved you were on the transmission tunnel or if you soundproofed the drivers area

I have not soundproofed the bottom of the car. so it was a failure on the car from the factory

It is not something I have heard of previously so I guess you were just unlucky if the nut had not been tightened correctly from new?

For the Sports/Copetition cars there are in Japan some Alloy or Polyurethane mounts available from Cusco, RRP and TM Square for the 6 Speed Suzuki Swift Sport that may be the same fitment....

Det var sku en god video, men vi behöver vel slet ikke noen undertekster?

I belive these are the bushings mentioned

these are some very expensive parts. I can make them in aluminum if it should be. I can see that they are both available for gear changer console and for the cable bracket on the gearbox

If you want one ask ctc Performance, you could also look at buying one for swift sport zc32s or Zc33s i think they use the same parts (please get this confirmed before buying)

I'd like to change the shifter base bushings on my Vitara. It would be interesting if the shifter base is the same part as in the Swift Sport.

I found a very interesting write-up with bushing measurements that could really help:

Kent, what do you think?

the measurements they give do not fit in vitara. as I remember it must be the measurements I have written here in the drawing. I can make them in raw aluminum if some want to buy sets. I don't think they cost much more than £ 15 plus shipping

Nice one Kent! That looks promising! If they fit and work effectively, count me in for a set.

Looking at other photos in this thread, how come the TM Square have a set of 3 bushings with bolts and washers and a set of 4 bushings.

I presume the set of 4 bushings is for the gear shifter base.

What is the set of 3 bushings with bolts and washers for?

Oh thank you that makes sense.
As a whole package it must give real direct gear changes.

Yes, I think it will too. I don't have time to try before Friday. We have a day off on Friday in denmark so expect to bring the car to work and put the bushings in I have made for the gearshift console and make some for the cable bracket on the gearbox as well.

That would be amazing if you get the cable bracket bushings made as well.
