Hi, So I ordered a new gear lever to fix the wobbly gear lever problem I have . I started stripping the protective covers underneath so I could get to the retaining bolt on the gear leaver. I have removed the exhaust and disconnect the handbrake, removed all the bolts holding the big cover on and its very loose but will not remove all the way! its loose and rattles about but something is holding it. I have even drilled the rivets to remove the heat shield hoping to find a hidden bolt . Has any body else done this job and can offer me any advice . Last resort would be to drill through the plate with a hole saw to get to the bolt but not keen on this method . Thanks for any help .
