Default Yellow washers?

Was refreshing my rouge ssk

This kit uses 2 metal washers (under shift lever )and 2 yellow factory washers @the selector rod joint

Anyways. After putting in new selector rod bushing I can no longer use the yellow washers the retaining clip wonít fit

Any of you guys run your shifters without them? Or is something wrong on my end? Maybe this new selector joint has different tolerances than the last ?

Thx

The aluminum selector rod joint does not need waahers. The steel version does.

No, all original E36 are steel version. If you bought the alu version, you no longer need the washers.

In other words, If they donít fit and the selector rod bolts up and functions without slop, youíre done.

I understand now... yes I ordered a genuine, most current version of the selector rod joint from BMW.

i'll just run it with a clip and no yellow washers....

what is interesting is Rouge's set up run's metal washers on the portion connected to the actual shift lever... who knows...
