How much play should there be in the shifter ball cup bushings?

Also called angular joints. I have the factory short shift kit, but the stock long rod with the ball cup/joints on each end. I've heard these going bad can cause issues like I'm having with my shifting. I have the tunnel cover off, but the joints don't look or feel too loose to my untrained eyes. They're not snug, but the balls are not falling out of the sockets. Should they be very firm with just a dab of grease in them?

There should be zero play when the ball is seated in the cup. It is quite difficult to pry them apart.

Oh, I'd never be able to pry them apart without a pickle fork. They're definitely well seated.

My angular joint failed while i was 400 miles from home. On a Saturday. No Porsche shop within 100 miles. So, I'd strongly suggest replacing both of them. I bought all new angular joint and shift tube (~$200) but later found out you can just buy the bushings (~$22). My original bushings had turned to dust.

from the 964 forum on Rennllist:

I found the answer on the 993 board... the part number for the bushing is 928-116-145-03-M100 and is listed as a 928 Clutch lever ball cup bushing. Around US$22 ea.

I found the parts listed on Pelican Parts.

I've just gone through the same exercise and replaced just the bushings. The part number is 928-116-145-03 and is listed as a 928 Clutch lever ball cup bushing.

You need two and Pelican has them for around $22 ea. Replace the angular joint bushing as well as the shift lever bushing at the other end of the guide tube. The bushings install into the cup quite easily with the aid of a broad flat blade screwdriver. Ensure you get the lip of the bushing all the way under the rim of the cup. A dab of grease inside the bushing and then use a jack to press the guide tube cup onto the shift rod ball. If you have a C2 you can press the angular joint cup on to the forward ball off the car but with a C4 the ball is welded onto the drive shaft cover so you need to use the jack again.

Regards,

Neil

I'd like to do this. How do you get those joints apart if the bushings are not totally trashed? I don't think a pickle fork is right for this job.

I used either waterpump pliers or a large screw driver, can't remember which but you can pry them apart.

Rick... i just had my car into Taylor Chapman's shop last year and he noted on the invoice that he had added a nylon tie wrap to the angular joint for security.
