I replaced the long one on my nieces' Partner 2.0hdi. The old one was a bit of a pain to remove but it came off with a bit of brute force and ignorance. The new one just sat in place then pulled down and clicked on easily.
So where does this bit go then ?
Hiya, I have replaced the three rods, BE4R gearbox, but the one to look out for is the larger Ball on the bracket and the bracket wobbles on the spindle. I'm not sure if the bushes can be changed so be prepared to replace the bracket complete. Also the rod that goes back from the gear selector to the bottom of the gearstick is connected to the gearstick with a bolt, this needed to be checked / tightened or replaced. I have put some washers in mine to take up some slack..
thank you all very much indeed, i am much obliged,bit of a stupid Q it has to be in neutral while doing the job ye???

I tried to change mine at the weekend and had a nightmare - easy enough to get them off and access wasn't too bad, 1.6HDi - I could do it from the top of the engine bay with the air intake and filter box removed. It was the linkages I bought which were the problem, they didn't pop on like the originals - I needed to remove a pin on each end (needle thickness) and re-insert at arms length with grease on my fingers, by touch alone - impossible. Managed one with a lot of cursing.
So, a bit of advice........avoid these....waste of money
