Particularly this bit:
|because air moves throught the shift boot up and out the window and when u close the windows cabin is preasurised in a way|
Edit: Does anyone also know the proper name for this part? ^^ Searching around gets me a lot of people looking to replace the actual shift boot, but not this cover/gasket.
I'm pretty sure that this might be the root cause of my problem. There's nothing leaking up there, but plenty of old oil and my breathers look to be in terrible shape. (Assuming they are where I think they are - just in front of each shifter, right?) The gasket under the shift boot is actually in decent condition but I'm going to replace it anyway.
How hard is it to replace these two breathers? I'm relatively mechanically inclined but when it comes to the transmission I really don't want to risk screwing anything up. I figure while I'm at it I'd relocate those breather exit points somewhere else.
Also, does anyone know what these plastic clips are actually called? They're what the shift boot plate actually screws into, and two of mine are broken. I'd like to get some new ones but I've no idea what they are called.
