my shifter has a descent amount of slop and i know the bushings in the linkage are shot. I was under the car today and couldn't get the roll pin to slide out. I should be able to just knock it out with a pick like the ordinary roll pin right? I made my own stainless sleeves on my lathe they're ready to be put in. Has anyone else had to deal with this before? help is always appreciated.

I drive an 02 2.5rs

There are two pins inside of each other. You have to punch out the inner roll pin before the outer.

I was able to get mine by putting the punch into an air chisel (BE CAREFUL WITH THIS!) and going to town.

Hah, dang...that sounds pretty tough. But yeah, it should just be a roll pin. I guess drilling it out like you said would probably be the best option if that bastard refuses to budge.

Ah yeah, I forgot about the whole double pin setup. It has been awhile since I replaced my linkage.

There are roll pins inside of eachother connecting the "knuckle" to the shaft coming from the tailhousing of the transmission. These are the only roll pins in the linkage. The knuckle bushings on GC/GM's are riveted together.

just curious if anyone has ever made their own sleeves out of steel instead of using bushings? I can only imagine it would have a sweet feel

Anyone know where I can get the roll pins or the part number for it? The previous owner lost them and replaced it with a split pin.

The part number may change depending on year/body style. When I'm looking for a part number, I go on parts.subaru.com

Depending on the price of the part, I buy it from either the dealer, ebay or Partsouq.com
