I might not be your car to install this part on, but it seems to work fine for my 2006 Caddy SRX. You should be able to easily install your model if it's yours. It was as simple as drilling out the post where the bushing was attached and removing A rivet was as easy to drill out as a hole in a loaf of bread. Once you have done that, all you need to do is use the C-editor to insert the new post You will receive a circular clip. It's really important to play with the bushings until the fit feels really snug. By the time the clip is installed, there should be no playing in the linkage. In my case, I did it several months ago, and I am happy with the results. I wish you the best of I will close with a PS. I wish the instructions were included in the original post, but feel free to approach this with confidence if it's necessary to drill it out.
If you have a 2005 CTS, this will work. A repair kit I purchased for my 2005 CTS bushings was purchased some time ago.
It did not feel loose to me at the time. Every time it was shifted, it made a clanking sound.

The shift linkage (under the vehicle, between the shifter and transmission) was making a terrible sound when the vehicle was accelerated, and there would be problems when putting the vehicle in Before you can do any work, you need to grind off the existing pieces. I used a dremel with a grinder tip under my car and I didn't have to remove my center console or shifter. It was easy to install the new bushings since they were held in place with a locking clip. Since then, my shifter is sturdy and the rattling has stopped. Now I no longer have any trouble shifting into Happy to hear that!.
The installer is easy to use. I found my shift linkage on the CTS to be loud and tinny. A complete lack of rubber on the linkage marked the end of the rubber. The whole shifter rod did not even need to be removed. It was just the old one that I removed. Downloaded it and installed it. The process is very simple. Using the shifter is quiet again. And it's cost-effective. Happy to hear you get Two of the CTs need to be replaced, but one is still in decent shape. It was broken and I lost it. When I took a look at it, I was trying to compare it to other things. There was no sign of it. The search for it has lasted two days now, and I have not found it.
It does what it needs to do. There is nothing frilly about it. I am pleased with this product. It does exactly what it promises. A pair of bushings is included in the package. There was only one I needed, so I have a spare in case the current one wears out in the future. In light of how well it has worked so far, it does not seem likely. Since I installed it over a year ago, it has been running flawlessly.
Metal on metal sounds have been eliminated during gear shifts. One thing I notice is that the clip is a bit loose, and I have seen reviews where it had fallen off while in use, On the clip part, it would be beneficial to apply some JB Weld in order to prevent it from falling My action was to do that.
It is a well-designed replacement for a poorly designed factory item. Once the factory item has been removed, installation is simple. The angle grinder I used to remove the peened over portion of the pin, then a punch to remove the factory pin, was all that was needed to accomplish this. With the provided parts, the assembly is very simple, and only a pair of pliers is required for assembly. This kit provides two bushing assemblies with pins and I'm not sure why. One is all I need for my 2005 Cadillac STS. As far as I see, this kit covers quite a few other vehicle models, so maybe two are needed for some models. You know what I mean. Now that I have a spare, I'm good to go.
The shifter on my 2005 Cadillac STS was clunking and was loose, so I bought this to fix it. The shifter would have to be pushed forward before I could put it in I paid a mechanic for an hour of labor, and it now works perfectly.
It's good to know.
I replaced it in twenty minutes and it resolved the clunking sound.
