VW Bushing

Custom VW Shift Rod Bushing

This is a custom bronze bushing that is impregnated with oil and is guaranteed for as long as you
own your vehicle.

  • No other bushing is guaranteed for as long as you own your car.
  • Easier to install the shift rod with this bushing than a stock bushing.
  • Fast easy shifting.
  • The original nylon bushings are time bombs.
  • Once they fail, shifting is sloppy and difficult.
  • Repair the problem once and forever.
  • Can be installed without grease, so it is not a greasy mess to install like the stock bushing.

***Important Information Please Read

The Custom Shift Rod Bushing only fits on the following vehicles:
1)  Vehicles using a stock nylon bushing, part #111701259A
2)  Vehicles using a stock 22 mm shift rod.
3)  Vehicles using a straight shift rod.

**VW is famous for inconsistency in its model year variations.
Add that to the fact that most VW’s have been modified a time or two in the last forty plus years, and it’s hard to say
what will fit by year alone.
For instance, pre-1960 did not use a bushing at all.  But many have been upgraded over the years.
That is why we have to specify compatibility by more than just the model year.

If your vehicle currently uses a stock nylon bushing, part #111701259A, and has a stock 22mm straight
shift rod, then our bushing should work on your vehicle.
Please make sure your shift rod is clean and round, not oval or bent out of shape.


The bushing is a clearance fit, and the shift rod should slide through without being forced.  Forcing the shift rod through the Bushing voids the guarantee and is no longer returnable.
Please Note:
EV4U is not responsible for any damages (to the bushing or
the vehicle) if you attempt to install the bushing in a vehicle
or on a shift rod that is not compatible as described above.

Please do not attempt to install this bushing unless you
have the mechanical aptitude to do this type of work.
Damaged bushings are not returnable.

Recommend that you watch both videos prior to attempting to replace the shift rod bushing.

Custom VW Shift Rod Installation Videos

Testimonials

I just had a chance to install the custom bronze shift rod bushing with the toolkit that you also
supplied.  Despite the excellent videos I must say I was daunted… but it turns out that I did
not have reason to be.  The process to disassemble and reassemble (shift rod, rear coupler,
etc.) took far more time than the actual installation of your part.  I have it all back together
now and the car is shifting beautifully with the lovely ‘click click’ you should expect.  Thank
you for such a quality product, well designed, engineered and with utterly flawless
instructions. Fast and cheap shipping to the other side of the world too!  I would recommend
this to anyone.

Best regards

I just installed the Bushing into my 1971 T182 Safari (aka Thing) and it works great.  Much easier to install than a standard bushing.

“I installed the bushing this weekend and it works great.
What an unbelievable product.
Every Bug and Ghia alive should have this upgrade.”
