Fit and worked perfectly. If you remove that battery and tray (just unplug the ECM and leave it attached to the tray), you can get to them easily. There's a few wire harness clips on the tray that you'll need to pop out to get the tray out as well, but the whole job took less than an hour.
The hardest part was getting the remaining rubber from the old bushing off. If you have a drill press and a course carbide burr, it made that really easy though. I just spun it fast and it was easy to control without going too deep. Without a drill press, course file would probably work.
Just installed these the other day, so I can't speak to durability or lifetime yet. However, install was a breeze following the instructions in the pack. One thing that was unclear from the product description (hence only 4 stars and not 5) was that this was BOTH of the linkage bushings. I was glad to see that and went ahead and replaced both, even though only one had fully failed. It would be nice to see that in the picture or in product description so that there's no guessing.
I couldn't be happier with the fast and efficient service and also the item I bought. I live in N.Ireland and it took about a week to get to me which I thought was exceptional service, thanks.
Bushing replacement fit and was easyto install with provided pressing tool.
I only needed the small bush as Fiat 500s have a weakness in the smaller green plastic linkage end. In the UK the only option is to buy complete new linkage cables at great expense, so this kit is great at a fraction of the cost.
After installation, the new bushing works perfectly. Got me back on the road and saved me a bunch of money. The receiving cup that came with the kit did not support the cable end very well, however, making installation of the new bushing tricky. It might have been the wrong cup, or it might have not been manufactured correctly. In spite of this, I was able to make it work.
It is an excellent solution it fits perfectly and the gearbox feels better than new.
Fast and easy thanks
Was a little disappointed that customs not pre-arranged with expedited shipping, apparently this service is coming soon. The base shipped with the kit does not have the same shape as the cable end from the vehicle, so it is a bit difficult to hold them together while tightening with the vise. Cable end keeps slipping and dropping into the base rather than hold around the lip. 2 inserts are included for multiple vehicle fitments. Maybe the base fits well on another vehicle application. Overall it got me out of a bind, and ridiculous repair bill so I'm very appreciative. I'm hoping it lasts a while before additional work has to be done.
