Automatic Transmission Shift Linkage Bushing: Installation Made Easy

Is your gear selector box making noises in certain speeds? If your answer is yes, then you should check your vehicle's automatic transmission shift linkage bushing. Though oftentimes overlooked, this bushing is very important because it protects the moving components of the transmission linkage from grinding with each other. Without it, the gear box will make rattling noises, and it will be difficult to shift gears. Fortunately, replacing this bushing can be done at home. This guide will teach you how you can do this repair by yourself and with the help of several tools.

Difficulty level: Difficult

What you'll need:

  • Replacement automatic transmission shift linkage bushing
  • Bushing press
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Wrench set
  • Socket set
  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Metal wire
  • Long-nose pliers

Safety tip: Always wear protective gloves and eyewear to avoid accidents while you're working on your vehicle.

Step 1: Park your car on level ground. Then, open the hood. Once it's open, disconnect the black battery cable using your wrench.

Step 2: Lift the front end of your vehicle using the floor jack. Don't forget to support the lifted part with jack stands.

Step 3: Using your wrench, remove the screws that are holding your vehicle's central console in place. Once they're removed, take out the central console to access the gear selection box.

Step 4: Loosen the screws around the gear selection box with the socket and flat-head screwdriver. Then, shift your car into drive or D.

Step 5: Disconnect the clip holding the transmission linkage under your vehicle. You can do this by inserting a metal wire through the clip. Then, pull the wire hard using your long-nose pliers.

Step 6: Once the clip is removed, disconnect the linkage. Then, detach the damaged bushing from the linkage.

Step 7: Place the new bushing at the same place where you removed the damaged one. Next, using a bushing press, secure the new bushing in place. Make sure that the bushing is in position before removing the bushing press.

Step 8: Put the linkage back in place under the gear box. Then, reattach the retaining clip so the linkage won't break.

Step 9: Reinstall the gear selection box followed by the central console using the wrench and socket. Once they're in place, reconnect the black battery cable, and close the hood.

Step 10: Lower your car to the ground. Afterwards, test drive your vehicle for a few miles to make sure that everything is working properly.
