Re: Quattro Digest V2 #398

I have been trying to track down a bushing for the
shifter connector rod.  This is a six inch long rod that 
connects the main shifter rod to the transmission housing.
It provides for proper pivotoing of the main rod for
selecting, say, reverse or 5th.  I can't select either of these.
The dealer wants to sell me the whole rod for $46 dollars.
The bushing is a ten cent part.  Anyone have a good source?
Anyone know about part commonality for this piece?

**Paul - try taking the offending part to a machine shop and have 
them make you one!  Should be cheap.  I've had misc. businigs done 
this way in the past.

Yeah.... but you better run them off relays and not the stock wiring harness.

****I wonder.  I have been running 100w/hi, 60w/lo bulbs for almost a 
year with *no problems at all*, using the stock harness.  This 
includes a couple of lengthy night drives.  The car is a 1990
