    • Hi, does the stick require a spacer between the floor? A friend of mine fitted on and said the lower bit was slightly longer than the original and had to make a spacer
    • Answer: No, this is a direct replacement for the stock shifter. I think your friend may be confused with the quickshift plate J11070

    • Does this include a new shift plate?

      If not should i replace the shift plate at the same time?
    • Answer: You do not need to buy the shift plate this eliminates the shift plate so you do not need one

    • I've inherited a crossover t2 with this shifter and although I can't fault it for finding the gears, in first it sits right on the hand brake so means the brake can't help me out on hill starts (which can be fun). Is it possible or adjust it's positioning to make more room? Any tips before I get my tools out would be appreciated.
    • Answer: Yes you can adjust it there are two bolts on the bottom of it . you can adjust it by slackening them off and moving it back a bit
