    My 4runner's shifter had too much slack for my liking. I was worried that one day I wouldn't be able to turn on the 4runner or have it release my key from the ignition. So I decided to change the shifter bushings as preventative maintenance.

    This writeup also applies for 1st generation tacomas.

    Each shifter assembly requires four bushings, here is the part number:

    [​IMG]

    Stare at the center console for 5 minutes. Give it a long mean mug stare.

    [​IMG]

    Set hand brake and grab pull out the cup holder:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next pull out the trim around the shifter, simply tug:

    [​IMG]

    Remove the center console. This is held down by two bolts inside the console:

    [​IMG]

    Remove the screw holding the center console to the shifter trim, one each side. This will allow the center console assembly to pull out of the way:

    [​IMG]

    Next remove the 4x4 shifter head, my particular setup is not threaded. Therefore, I remove the set screw and pull the head off carefully.

    [​IMG]

    Be very careful not to pull the wiring that leads to the 4x4 shifter (black).

    [​IMG]

    I placed it to the side, did not really disconnect the wiring because I was afraid of messing up the pigtail connection.

    [​IMG]

    Next I removed three screws that hold the shifter down to the assembly:

    [​IMG]

    Once removed, it revealed this white device thing:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I removed the three screws that held it down. Pay attention to how it is mounted, there is a rectangular piece that goes inside of it. This needs to properly seat within a slot that is built into this device thing:

    [​IMG]

    Before continuing, I went under the truck - Driver's side, and I disconnected the shifter from the transmission. Making sure to mark the location where it is bolted along the slot:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once that is complete, I went back up to the shifter assembly and removed 8 of these bolts. They are located on the perimeter of the shifter panel against the floorboard:

    [​IMG]

    Disconnected a couple of plugs to allow removal of bolts:

    [​IMG]

    Had to pull the radio bezel off the dash to access one of the bolts:

    [​IMG]

    Pull away! - here you can see the location of all 8 bolt holes, for reference.

    [​IMG]

    Now that the shifter assembly is out, stare at it. Show it some attention. Give it love.

    [​IMG]

    See this nut? Remove it.

    [​IMG]

    It will release this bolt:

    [​IMG]

    The shifter bushings go in each end of the bolt housing:

    [​IMG]

    Old shifter bushings, rotted away:

    [​IMG]

    Make sure to clean out any remaining bushing pieces within the bolt housing:

    [​IMG]

    Install bushings and install bolt.

    [​IMG]

    Next, I located the other two bushings, these are in here:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Remove nut and bolt, just like previously done:

    [​IMG]

    Once the nut and bolt is out, you will need to break the linkage as shown here. This is done by removing a C clip.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once the linkage is apart, I wiggled the housing up so I can pull out the old bushings:

    [​IMG]

    Installed the new ones:

    [​IMG]

    Install bolt and nut, reinstall linkage and C clip.

    [​IMG]

    Reinstall into truck:

    [​IMG]

    Reattach rod to transmission:

    [​IMG]

    Carefully assemble the white thinga-machig to the shifter. Make sure that the rectangular portion shown in the photo earlier lays within the channel:

    [​IMG]

    See this? - How does it go?

    [​IMG]

    Let's find out:

    It directly connected to the emergency shifter release button:

    [​IMG]

    Looks like it toggles when I move the button back and forth, two positions:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Looking down into the shifter assembly I see this triangular piece of plastic. Lets set it BEHIND this piece.

    [​IMG]

    Once it is set, I check for functionality:

    [​IMG]

    See that white plastic cylinder? Its right above the screwdriver tip. Toggle the release button, this white cylinder should move in and out, if installed properly.

    [​IMG]

    Once you confirm functionality, reinstall everything else:

    [​IMG]

    How is the shifter?

    Mine is tighter than a frog's arse!
