Eliminate side to side compliance and remove the slack on your shifter by replacing the rubber OEM shifter bushings on your Mazdaspeed 3 or six speed Mazda 3 with the CorkSport aluminum black anodized shifter bushings.
Over time shifting gears can cause the soft rubber bushing found at the anchor point of your shifter assembly to deteriorate and fall apart. Replacing the shifter bushings will provide a noticeable difference in the way your car drives and improve shift responsiveness for years to come.

I have a 5-speed mz3 would these fit? Sorry I am new to cars
>>CorkSport Reply: They will not fit the 5-speed models. The shifter base is different.

Quick easy install. And look great its a shame there hidden. lol I noticed a slight difference but my car was fairly new upon install so my rubber mounts were still in good shape.

Haven't had the chance to install yet but shipping was incredibly quick. I ordered them this past Friday night and I received them this afternoon. Will definitely be getting more from CorkSport!

Dont know what all the trouble other people had but for me the only thing that was a pain in the butt was removing the factory bushings an yes needle nose pliers are a must for this installation. Didnt find this hard at all only took me about 30 minutes to install and yes DONT DROP ANYTHING .. I find this to be well describe product although all my bushing were the same size i measured them to see but installed them any way had no problems works fine shifter is more soild an feel tighter just by only replacing the rubber mounts to soild who would figure .. NICE JOB CORKSPORT.. AN THANK YOU

This is the hardest thing I have ever worked on in any car in my life. I have given up on trying to disconnect the shifter cables. Bottom line: Mazdas are not to worked on without proper tools or training. Do not get this product unless you take it to dealer. I will take it to dealer for them to install. Corksports usual instructions are poor and lacking detail. Understandably, because this is very difficult or impossible. After this, I will never work on this MSP3 again.

I bought these shifter bushings for my 2012 Mazda3 Hatchback Skyactive with the MT. Only the two smaller shifter bushings fit into the housing the way they were supposed to. I will be calling and asking for new ones. The original shifter bushings were a pain to take out so I have to improperly install the larger shifter bushings until the new ones come in. I did however, notice a better shifting performance even when installed improperly.
>>CorkSport Reply: Dave, we would love to get you taken care of, give us a call 360-260-2675. We have not had anyone experience a fitment problem with the bushings in the SkyActiv model 3.

Don't underestimate the simplicity of this mod, or you'll be digging around the shifter looking for lost bushings. Other than a bloody knuckle from digging around, and a bit of frustration, the mod is very easy to install. Take it slow and do everything carefully and you'll have it done with no problems. After install, it feels like the shifter just knows exactly where the gears are. Super smooth and precise shifting; a major improvement on the stock bushings.

2012 with 13000, Install was easy but I have one thing to say. ( Needle nose pliers). With these you will have the job done in min. Take your time and you will not lose anything. Thanks Corksport.

The install was no problem at all. Getting the OEM bushings out was a little pain however. Overall, feels much better and I couldn't be happier for the price.
