Fitting the Orbital Motorsport Mk1 Fiesta Quick Shift Kit
Please note this kit is designed to fit the Mk2 Fiesta XR2, I am at this stage unsire of which other cars share the same fitment.
If yours looks like the one in the pics below you should be fine.
The kit includes a plastic space and 4 new stainless nuts and bolts.
Here is instructions on how I modified and fitted the kit to my own car.
Remove the gear change unit from the car and disassemble
Measure 10mm up the gear stick from the circlip grooves and file in new grooves on each side.
Take the gear rod cut around the ball at the end so you are through the plastic only and not the metal. You need to do this as per the pic.
Place in a vice and gently hammer down on the threaded end of the rod, the plastic should then move up the metal shaft all the way till it has moved 10mm.dont have the vice tight on the plastic just enough to support the plastic ball but not grip it.
Now glue this in place, I have used superglue but any metal to plastic should do.
Now re assemble
Once fitted and adjusted to get all the gears you will see the Gear change throw is now improved.
