The shift linkage rod has a two connections; one to the gearshift mechanism above the rear driveshaft (PITA to get to) and another at the transmission

It appears to me that there is a bushing missing from the transmission end, although the part doesn't show on EPC (just shows the aluminum end piece and the clip). The bushing at the gearshift is intact but there is a lot of slop at the transmission end.

Maybe the bushing is part of the transmission but damned if I can find it on EPC.

Can someone confirm the presence of this bushing or better yet provide a part number?

Thanks in advance

Yes, that's the bushing (green in color). I had some fun time put it in this morning. The final success was use a bolt and a washer (as the other washer and nut gives leverage on the other side) pressed the bushing into the hole.
