Hi Yorkie, Tim

Can you identify the parts from this?

or do you have another diagram or part numbers?

Hi @white exec. In your second diagram of the connecting links. I can't see on that diagram that there are bushes but the ball joint connections I have seem to have little nylon bushes in. I think I need for 1 to 4. And 2 to 5? And 3 to 5? (can't work out if it says 5 or 6).

You can click on the diagram to enlarge it. I think what you want are the gearbox selector links which are 3 and 4 in my diagram. The length and diameter is shown, the bushes for the ball joints inside do wear out and are not available as replacements you have to get complete rods. The length is not too critical as they are adjustable and can be shortened too cutting a new thread if necessary. I believe some are usually on eBay new or used so look at anything for any Citroen or Peugeot and get the nearest you can.

Ah. That's the key. I thought the bushes would be available. Or even some universal ones. Shame to have to get the whole linkage. Thanks for the info!

There are two different linkages/parts shown for 1580 & 1905 petrols, either side of RP4530...
