Replacing gear shifter linkage bushings
Hi everyone. How do we replace the plastic grommet or bushing on the shift
linkage on A 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup? It's probably a universal solution
for anyone replacing hard neoprene / plastic bushings. The original is a soft
rubber material. The replacement is hard and I cannot get it pressed in. The
dealer mentioned Hot Water, but it is not changing the flexibility at all. What is
the secret? I am replacing the bushing that is on the transmission lever on
the tranny, and it connects to the linkage that is from the steering column. It
has to snap into a hole, and then the linkage snaps into a hole in the bushing.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I found the solution and it is explained in a later post of mine, with a similar question. I decided to keep this question up, in case it helps someone's search criteria. I posted the second question because this original question was not showing up last night. Strange.
