So you slice it through on onside? Very neat idea, wished I had known that trick before. Oh well, you gotta learn somehow. Thanks for sharing. Actually, I started to leave my temporary fix in there to see how long it would last - ithe shifter felt just as solid with hose sleeve as with the bushing.Next time, just slice the bushing so you can roll it in. That's what the MB dealer told me when I bought the first one fore about $4-5.
