Article 2014 - Shift Linkage Plastic Grommets

TSB #128 - December 5, 1969
(All Passenger Car Transmissions)


Standard and automatic transmission linkage systems make use of oil-impregnated plastic grommets to connect various rods or levers. Information regarding a tool and its use for grommet removal/installation is found in the transmission sections of the 1970 Shop Manual.

Any time a grommet type connection is changed, the oil-impregnated grommet should be REPLACED, not reused. Strict adherence to this procedure is necessary to assure satisfactory retention of the connecting links and overall system operation.
