Bought this along with the lower boot and the nylon cup (recommend to buy all three). I was noticing an unusual amount of heat and road noise coming from the gearstick area. Lifted the centre console to find a series of torn boots which were the culprits. The heat I can live with bt the constant noise coming fron the road and the exhaust makes you think you have a gasket blown!
Piece of p%ss to fit, just make sure you use a snips to cut off the old lower boot and some washing up liquid to lubricate the *ahem* shaft to help slide on the new boots and little nylon cup.
It's also worthwhile renewing the turret oil while your there. You'll need a plastic syringe with a piece of 8mm hose clamped on the end to suck the old stuff out. I used Castrol Syntrax to replace it with. Might seem a bit pointless but the whole operation really improves the gearchange. It's no longer notchy goin into first or third and the change itself is like cocking the bolt action on a rifle....if ya get me!
Once again speedy delivery and quality service! Top Marks!
