•A qualified technician should be used if you are not confident with removing the factory shifter base bushing assembly.

Removal of the Factory Shifter Base Bushing
1.Lift the vehicle so you can work comfortably underneath the center of it. Use caution operating a lift or jack stands, to ensure the car is stable and safe to work around and underneath.
2.Remove the two 10mm flange-head nuts at the rear of the shifter assembly, above the driveshaft, from the threaded studs securing the factory shifter base bushing assembly to the floorpan. See figure 1.
3.Gently lower the shifter base and bushing assembly off the threaded studs.
4.Gently pry the bushing assembly off the rear of the shifter base. See figure 2.
5.Allow the shifter base to rest on the driveshaft.

Installation of the Steeda Shifter Base Bushing
6.Slip the bushing over the same shaft you removed the factory bushing assembly from.
7.Slide the billet bracket over the polyurethane bushing, with the bracket’s Steeda engraved face to the rear of the vehicle. See figure 4.
8.Re-install the two nuts that were removed earlier, and torque to 97 in-lbs. NOTE: APPLY BLUE LOCTITE TO THE NUTS BEFORE RE-INSTALLING.
