1983 380 SL
All Kent did was reprise a video he made several years ago. Apparently the same shifter bushings have been used on many Mercedes models for a few decades. I bought the bushing insertion tool approximately 2 years ago and the current video is pretty much the same, only a different model.I viewed Part #10 on changing the shifter bushings and thought that it was the best of the bunch so far. Kent showed not only how to use the his special tool for rear bushing, but also how to remove the front assembly and replace the bushing on the bench. Very helpful, as I need to do these bushings on my car. I have noticed that all of the videos are centered around selling a special tool and parts kits, so be advised his priority of these videos is selling stuff. But some of them are helpful in showing you the problems you need to overcome in order to do the specific task. The question I still have is do I need the tool to press on the rear busing that must be done on the car in place?
One other thing... on my '83 380 I did not have to remove the front shift lever in order to install the clip or the bushing. I did it all on the car.
Here's one of Kent's earlier videos demonstrating the same tool. This video is 6 years old...
