With a fork wrench 13 we take off the main screw. After that with a screwdriver unscrew the screw on the other side and pull out the lever.

Take out the ribbons from the transmission so that we don’t lose them. If you are sure you wont lose them then you don’t need to take them out.

Parts of the mechanism that are holding the gear lever

The mechanism is made out of a circular protector, a spring, plastic foundation and two pieces of plastic that surround the ball in the bottom part of the transmission.

Assembling the bottom part of the mechanism

First we place in the spring.

In the spring place a foundation that has a cut on it. The cut is there so that the rest of the mechanism is compatible.

Thus we place the bottom part of the lever with a ball into the foundation. And the plastic pieces around it. When these plastic pieces are connected they have space for a cut that is in the spring.
