Can't say i've ever heard of the srt4 bushing set fitting. Not even in passing mention after lots of reading on my part.

Don't know diddly about the SRT-4.

Maybe it's got a Getrag like the Minis, so it shares some parts with the SVT 6-spd Getrag.

Going off this, If that is correct then the bushings won't fit your MTX-75

Done deal. As soon as we removed the console, it was easy to see what was going on. Even found pieces of the old bushing...pretty thin material. Made/created my own and it fits perfectly. By the way, whose bright idea was it to have all these damn star bolts/screws to remove the seats and other various items? I had my 10, 12, 14, and 15 mm sockets ready to go. Looked down at the seat rails and wth? Removed the drivers seat to get better access to the side of the shifter where the bushing goes. Going to remove all the carpet anyway... lots of dog hair from previous owner that a vacumn won't touch.

Thanks for the help and advice.

Need a brush to loosen the hair, rubber nub type is great and easier to get the hair out of it.

Torx are good for power tools used in installation, and leave a smooth top surface.

Glad you got it fixed up, figured on that location but it's always a guess.

We decided to use some hard plastic hose we had laying around. It seems harder than the bushing, and fits in with a little convincing. We left a little bit hanging out to be able to pull out when needed, and it doesn't ride against the console.

What size hose did you use? I have the same problem and makes getting into reverse a pain in the butt.

Chat Session with someone from parts.ford.com

I just had a chat with someone from parts.ford.com and they do not have a part number for the "bushing" discussed in this thread. I have attached the diagram that he showed me. Looks like a fail for ford. I will be trying the hose trick on mine.

Hose installed

I installed the hose and it works great. I only took off the top four screws to gain better access for installing the hose.
