the entire gear selector shaft needs replacement. anyone know of a short shifter option? or do i need to visit the dealer?
The differentials are different, the right side axles are different and the shift towers on the transmissions are different. The internal selectors are the same in the transmissions and I would assume (but don't know for sure) that the box in the car is same.
TMTuning.com sells a short shifter kit for a B3/35i but I don't know if it will adapt to a 02C transmission.
