    Gear linkage bushes and circlips?

    Hi guys, where besides the stealerships can i obtaon the gear linkage bushes and -i think they're called:- circlips or circle clips or something... It's the one that holds the ball on the shift lever.
    I have a shortshifter i want to fit but want to do the bushes and have circlips on hand in case i break one or two.

    I don't mind shopping online but if anyone knows somewhere in west sussex, so much the better

    Thanks in advance

    Any other ideas? Damned if i can find them on fleabay lol

    Do the e36 and e46 share the same gear linkage/gearshift components and setup?

    Missus bought me the wrong Haynes Book of Lies but wondering if it might still be useful in some way.

    No circlips on the standard lever. The ball is fixed. There is a plastic bush that presses into the holder the lever clips into. There are a couple of plastic washers under the lever where the shift bar pushes into the bottom of the lever. There is a retiming clip which holds the bar into the bottom of the lever. Can't link as I'm on the phone but there is not a lot to it.
