Mazda Protege Bronze-Oil Shifter Bushings

Price: $49.99

Take out the slop of the stock shifter with the bronze shifter bushings for your mazda.  Green bushings are the stock plastic parts, upgraded bushings are the bushing shown on the right.
Add to wish list

If the shifter in your car is getting a bit loose or sloppy the CorkSport Shifter Bushings are the answer. The bushings are machined from a brass alloy.

Machined to much closer tolerances than the original ones, these bushings will provide more positive shifts and will eliminate sluggishness at the expense of a bit more vibration on the shift lever. *Does not work on all after market shifters.

The kit contains 4 bushings (2 front - 2 rear) to replace the 4 OEM bushings on the shift linkage.

These bushings fit the 90-03 Mazda Protege, Mazdaspeed Protege, 92-97 Mx3, 90-95 Ford Escort/Escort GT, and many other models (check the FAQ).
The shifter bushings include full installation instructions.

Mazda Protege Shifter Bushings Installation
These made a huge difference on my 1990 Mazda protege/323
After another shop told me the bushings were impossible to replace due to being sealed inside the shifter box (which didn't seem right), I found these and had them installed at a different shop. Shifter feels brand new, tight and crisp especially compared to the old, worn out ones. Very, very pleased.
(2002 Protege5) Installed the shifter bushings along with the 3rd link bushing kit. The kits came with great instructions that made the installation very easy.

The end result is fantastic! My shifter is now smooth and solid.
Bought these for my 96 323 BA to replace Mazda bushings. Easy to install, fitting perfectly and makes a noticeable difference. Would Recommend!
Worth Every Penny!
Shifter hasn't felt this solid in years.
These bushings will work on a 2003 Protege5.
Excellent quality, fits perfect if left in freezer overnight (follow the instructions provided, no need to force them in). Fixed the "loose" feeling in the shifting mechanism MUCH better than the plastics OEMs. Thx again CS! Soon will get the 3rd Link ones.
I waited about a month after installation to write my review to give the shifter some break-in time. Installation was performed These bushings absolutely exceeded my expectations, and the difference is very noticeable going from worn plastic O.E bushings -> high quality bronze bushings that meet O.E tolerances. A very small amount of grinding (took about ~2 min.) was required, but was expected. Shifter feels just as I hoped it would. Thanks to CS.
This made my 1988 323 feel brand new in the shifting department
(95 escort sedan)... These bushings worked amazing!!! I no longer hit my fiancee in her left leg for 5th gear!!LOL But I agree be careful not to over tighten the linkage, it WILL get stiff.. But they wear in nicely after the first couple shifts... THANK YOU CORKSPORT!!
Purchased these for a 1992 Mazda MX3, easy to install worked great feels like a real shifter. Before I had about 6-8 inchs of play before it would go into gear and was difficult to get into reverse sometimes now it feels great, and has a shorter throw due to no slop in the shifter anymore. Will purchase from CS again. Fast service and great product. Thanks CS
