    Default 205 - What part is this?

    Hi Guys,
    What's the correct name for the circled part below?
    It's what I'd describe as a "gear selector fork". I need to order a new one from Peugeot, so I want to make sure that I ask for the right thing

    If you use the term 'selector fork' you'll finish up with a part that belongs inside the gearbox housing...

    I'd call it the 'top selector arm' or something, maybe describing where it fits. Can you simply give them the picture?

    Thanks Ray,
    I might just do that

    I've got one off a 306 on my baby, Peugeot learnt that they had to reinforce it

    Oh, and Regan's have ordered the part for me. Showed them the photo and they said it'd take 15 days or so to come from france. Still don't know what it's officially called though . I'll post a product code when I pick it up in 15.

    By the way, I had to replace one of these on an Auto 405 last year and EAI had them in stock....so they might be worth a go.

    Why would you have to replace such a thing on an automatic?

    It's on the end of the selector rod on the 405 Auto's, it's like a nylon cup afair and goes onto a ball on the top of the gearbox.

    The nylon slogs out and they fall off causing the car to be stuck in what ever gear you were in, thats why you replace them

    Cheers

    Yeah... those things on the rods...

    But Josh's query is about the other piece, not the rod. The lever that's attached to the gearbox.

    Isn't that the part that gets modded for a quick-shift kit?

    Yep, definitely a bell crank. I guess if you wanted to mod it to make it a quick shift (shorten the gear lever throws) you could move the ball - the bit the rod end pops on to - closer to the pivot of the crank. It'll make the lever movement stiffer, though. A grind, drill and braze job. We had a similar setup with the E-Type's throttle when converting to RHD. Took some trial and error to get the travel vs effort right.

    I've actually got a quickshift kit here from Griff-Eng in the UK.
    I didn't get the "Group A Rally Spec" one though (which replaces the part that I queried about in this thread) - the quickshift I've got attaches to that part and goes between the gear linkage.

    Gear changes should be nice! I'll have to get the clutch replaced first mind you... (It fell apart a few days ago... very painful sound!)
