I was able to install these bushings without too much effort at all. Afterwards the shifting response has greatly improved. THANKS!
To whoever reads this, the staff of the site or a customer ordering this, just know if it's for your 2002 Mini Cooper / s to 2006 you'll have to remove the rubber part of the bushing from the prior bushing and leave the metal ring that is going to be corroded or sandwiched to the face of the shifter linkage, just remove the rubber and then you should push it in and it fits like a glove and there is little to no play. not all the rubber has to come off the face does not have to be clean just enough to push it in and use the lube to help. 8.7/10 it costs way to much for what it is it's a soft molded plastic.
Slightly annoying that Mini shift cable ends don’t come off but easy enough to replace. Remove the two E12 torx holding the cable bracket to the transmission to give yourself more space and get to work with some pliers or a small c-clamp, pliers worked better for me. The small press tools they send you as well are wonderful, they are plastic but they are tough.
The cable ends on the Mini Cooper, 2011, did not come off the ends of the cable so I had to do the repair while the ends were on the vehicle, which made it more difficult. I used a pair of channel locks to press the new bushing into the cable end. It worked out well and the shifter is repaired and feels much better. The kit has a very good system for pressing the bushing but because I was in the engine well I could not use it but was able to install the part without damage. This is a good product that is certainly cheaper than replacing the entire cable which is a real mini workout.
