do you know that from experience or are you taking a guess at that because the bushing doesnt seem like its that easy to remove

I believe you have remove the pin, pop the metal face off the bushing and then "carefully" remove the rubber bushings, if I remember correctly I had to pry, bottom line...don't bend those cables! I'll go look at my old bushings and see if I can remember exactly how I removed them. IMG_20150411_093013.jpg

From experience.

However, I did make a mistake in my previous post now that I think about it. Pull the cotter pin out. The metal shim (the metal piece that looks like a washer) slides off. Theres a plastic insert underneath that (which is where the two yellow "teeth" come from in your picture). Pry that out - at this point you need to handle with care because you can easily bend the cable(s). Finally once the insert is out you can then remove the rubber bushing. Installation of the Hybrid Racing bushings is pretty straightforward.

Hey, I remember, after you remove the pin, I used a flat head and pried it out you can see where I pried a little to hard! You don't have to remove that metal face! The whole bushing will pop out! IMG_20150411_094458.jpg
