Replacing circlip on gear lever


Recommended Posts

Bit of a basic question...

Looking at moving the position of the gear lever and the Haynes manual is saying the circlip on the lever pivot should be replaced with a new one. How important is this? Will it get deformed if I take it off, or can it just be reused? Don't have one spare, so would mean just mean a slight delay in doing this.

Simple answer to this is do you have the correct tool. 

If you have something that fits well and you treat it with respect, all fasteners can be reused. If you have to butcher it, you need a new one.
