    Default 505 Selector rod

    My 505 has dropped one side of the selector rod from the gearbox to the gearstick. Appears the bush? in the cup has shredded and do you think i can locate either a refit kit or ven a second hand one. Looking for advise whether youve had this go and or does anyone have a parts one, cheers Rob

    New rods are not expensive -around $25 from EAI or Carvelle. Alternatively,fill the cup with silicone and set it in place and let it cure overnight. It should last a year or two

    A couple of cable ties will also do the trick for around 5 years and counting.

    Yeah, that'll work, but it'll be a bit of a loose gearchange if the bush has shredded.

    Coat the ball with grease then fill the cup with Araldite and reassemble.
    Better just to buy a new one through.

    A couple of layers of electrical tape and a bit of a trim with a sharp cutting device. As long as it's greased first and then becomes a firm push on fit it should get you out of trouble whilst awaiting the NEW PARTS!
    Coat the ball with a water resistant grease and "Happy trails".

    The rods are a complete unit with the plastic bush in place. The worst part is that the nice/bright and shiny part makes the slightly grubby gearbox case look a wee tad 'ordainare'.
    So factor in a a couple of cans of de-greaser/hot soapy water and getting really dirty to give yourself the warm inner glow of a "Good owner".

    I usually use a pair of multigrips or a long screwdriver to push the new rod on. They need a bit of a push.

    It would'nt hurt to spray some degreaser onto the gearbox and then wash it down before you try and fit it,

    Lots of good short-gap solutions. Good luck

    The two businesses mentioned (EAI & Caravelle) will almost certainly be happy to mail you the offending item.

    Hi-Should the afore mentioned guys be unable to supply then go to a bearing place such as C.B.C and get some new rod ends.I forget it the 505 shafts are threaded or not.It they are not go to a bolt supplier supplier & purchase a piece of threaded rod & a couple of nuts- to use as lock nut.It would be nice if the nylon bushes were replaceable!.Obviously you would need to take the old shaft with you.There used o be a good place up the top end of the major road that runs West & parallel to Geelong Rd.-Where the big Sphinks is.They sell tools ,bearings etc.
    Hope that assists.
    Peter.

    That place would be Blackwoods in 385 Thompson Rd Geelong. (the place on the road near the sphinx.)

    Also Rob Hamilton Bearings, Des Munday Engineering Supplies, Geelong Fasteners, and Geelong Industrial Supplies are all good places in Geelong to try for that sort of stuff.

    Also chat to Laurie Ogle Motors who has a bit to do with Peugeots - might have some ideas where to get parts locally.

    EAI posts parts promptly. Order it in the morning and it should be delivered in 1-2 days. Any parts really urgently needed can be delivered by Priority Post, guaranteed next day delivery. It works, I get my tractor parts that way.

    a couple of cable ties work well, if you then wrap it with duct tape it is less sloppy and lasts a long time--is it a GTI or not?Be sure to specify as I think they are different-at least in the wagons, don't know about the sedans.-or maybe it's different between the wagons and sedans? Also there is another short rod( for reverse I think) whish is worth replacing at the same time. Max
