    Ive replaced the gear shifter rod joint (part 12) but there is no space for the washers (10) either side as per diagram.

    Even if i put one washer on the groove in the selector rod (9) for the retaining clip (11) doesn't protrude out far enough to get the clip on..

    Anyone else had this problem? Is it a problem?

    The entry for part 12 in realoem says "without plastic washers" so I think the part has probably been changed and doesnt now need the washers shown. I
    would think it's fine without them.

    Just done this myself, looks like its an updated version with the washer part built into the sleeve so you don't need them.

    I did this recently and you can see on Rod Joint that the black plastic sleeve for the Rod extends outwards, basically creating its own "washers". I can grab a photo of what I mean, if you need it?
