I did some research and found the DIY thread where folks were able to swap in the shifter from a 330i SSK without getting under the car. I went ahead and ordered the shifter from Tischer and tried to install last night. I ran into a problem though. Once I get the bushing rotated and loose I can't pull up on the old shifter enough to get the bushing out of the cup. Without this I can't get to the circlip on the bottom of the shifter and I am toast. Has anyone ran into this issue and can provide insight? For giggles I did put the car up on ramps and took a look underneath but there is no way in hell I can get to it from down there without major disassembly.
Take a look at the last two post in this link: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...=106829&page=2
I have posted some photos there.
Please help!!! I really want to get this installed.
