1. Either buy a new linkage from fleabay or dismantle your one from your gearstick - either way you will need to dismantle your gearstick at some time.
(see other guides to learn how to do this)
DO NOT cut off the head of the gear stick put it in a vise and pull it off

You will also need a suitable piece of metal the size of the base of the white unit (I had a nice piece of 8mm ali knocking about the workshop)

Preparing the plastic unit

Now you need to cut the extended flange from the white plastic unit...

Marking your plate

Now put the bracket on your plate and draw round it and mark the holes

I then drilled out the holes and bolted the bracket upside down so I could get a good approximation of the centre on the main hole.

Then I used the small base unit to check it again

Then it was time to cut out the plate to shape
(notice I bolted the units together at this point so I could check that the gearstick did not foul on the plate)

Then fit it - JOB DONE !!!

(depending on how your plastic linkage is mounted you may need to get some bolt extenders) such as these:-
