Wevo 911 Shifter install:
Taking the Slop out of shifting


The L shaped bracket will now slip right off.


Use a small screw driver to pry the plastic bushing out. It’s a hard plastic, so you’ll need to use some force to pop it out.


I soaked the new Wevo supplied bushing in hot water so that it would be softer and easier to push into place.


With a good amount of pressure I was able to press the bushing in by hand. With that done, I reinstalled the bracket with the shifter ball socket.


On my particular car I had a shifter base spacer that wasn’t going to be re-used so if you have the same thing, toss it in the parts bin.


Now it’s just a matter of installing everything much like it came out. Start by bolting the shifter back to the chassis.


The carpet then slides over it.


And the center console is loosely put in place.

Remember that plastic rivet we drilled out? Replace it with a screw or bolt.


Slide all the remaining wires through and insert the center panel into the console. Basically reverse the process of removal and you’ll be golden.


Screw the shift knob onto the shaft and we’re just about done. But wait, look at the brown under carpet material sticking out, that doesn’t look good!


The solution is to get a black marker and carefully paint it using a piece of paper as a shield from the shifter base. You don’t want to mess up that fresh paint job now do you?


And that’s it! Wevo shifter install complete. It certainly looks good doesn’t it? I personally love the exposed and raw look. Plus it also makes adjusting the shifter much easier.


That’s really the last thing left to do. Shift through all the gears and ensure each and every gear engages and the shifter returns to center when released. Wevo has a very detailed and well-documented method to ensure you’ve got your shifter dialed it so be sure to refer to it for those instructions.

I can say that without a doubt this was one of the better modifications I made to the 930. It has eliminated 90% of the slop found in the stock shifter and reduced the throw to what I think is the perfect distance. It didn’t alleviate my worn synchros issue, though, but that’s for another story. One that’ll have to include a full transmission rebuild, a job I’m not looking forward to.
