tranny-side shift linkage dowel on an early shifter. This is pin

that is covered by the tension bushing, not the pin attaching to

the shift lever.

I've been beating on this all afternoon (well... on and off) and it

simply won't budge. S'ok/liquid wrench doesnt help either. I

rigged a snaggle-tooth to push it out from the top, and ended up

breaking a clamp. Can it be driven out from the bottom side of

the linkage?

I really don't want to drop the tranny just to change a linkage....

You have taken the thin metal collar off the tranny end of the linkage, right?

In the older linkage, there are two pins, a horizontal one that attaches the rod to the connector (for lack of a better word) and the vertical one that attaches it to the transmission. Perhaps you will have better luck after removing the rod, I did.

yep- removed the sleeve and am working on the vertical pin. it's absolutely amazing how stuck this thing is, yet the linkage is still flexible. I think the pin might be bent..

You might try pushing the connector (I need a better word for this) against the transmission while you try and push out the pin. There is a little spongy thing that fits between the two that prevents slop. Perhaps compressing that would make the pin easier to get out?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
