Hi,

I'm trying to change the gear linkage from the old plastic relay lever to the updated metal selector rod. Is there any way I can change this from just in the engine bay or do I need the whole linkage out? I have tried taking the lever off as it pops off one side continously (hence the change) but can't seem to get the side closest to the driver off thd ball joint. I don't want to rive at it and end up snapping it.

It just pops off. I've replaced a few. They can be tight but I usually just get brutal with them as the link rods knackered anyway. The balls they fit onto are metal so the plastic will snap before the metal.

Alright, I'll get more forceful with it then try. Was just concerned the plastic rod would snap leaving one side of the rod still attached to the ball joint. Thanks for the reply!
