Good question.
manual gear shift lever lube, and more

I'm waiting for spring weather to actually arrive, then I'll be tearing into my gear shifter to replace the bushing talked about later in that thread I linked.

Steve.
Can confirm the shifter bushing is plastic.

I just checked my turret, seems to hold different from the trans - mine was filled to the level and lubricated so I didn't change anything at this time on the turret area.

Just ordered a bronze shifter bushing from Fab9 tuning for the NC3 MX5 :)

Did you order the larger 24mm bushing?

Any advice on dismantling the console and shifter assembly?

Steve.
No idea, just guessed. Will find out when it gets here!

I pulled up around the shift boot trim from inside of it with my hands - the front of that piece that goes to the cubby hooks in and rotates up and out after.

If you have a sport button, you should unclip the harness from it after the 2 screws are removed. Then you can lift the front of the console more and unplug the harness from the dial/buttons controls.

Take it easy the first time, don't want to break any clips.
