    I just bought these shifter bushings for my '00 9-3 SE, to tighten up the shifter. I have done quite a bit of DIY with my car, so I figured I could do it. But I can't find anywhere online or on the car where these things go! Do they go on the actual shifter in the console, and I have to tear the...
