hey 2000 gts owners...
previously i had complained to my local dealer 'bout troubles with the shifter in getting into certain gears. from forums at everythingcelica.com i had discovered that other 00 celica owners had similar problems. upon further investigation there has been a technical service bulletin for the 00 celica on 9/01 concerning "difficulty selecting gears with the 6-speed manual transmission."TRD
has developed a shortshifter that cannot be implemented with the "retrofit" update kit if applied to older celicas. my celica is an older celica (2000).
i want my shifter performing at its ideal operating condition. my question is will the TRD
shortshifter replacing my old shifter resolve the TSB problem? and if it cannot, if i request my car be retrofitted with the shifter update, will it be covered under the extended bumper-to-bumper warranty?
anybody got any input?
TC002-01 SEP 01 M/T - 6 Speed MTM Difficulty Selecting Gears
Due to a production change on the 6-speed Celica GTS, the quickshifter (00602-30301-010) will no longer fit this model if produced after 5/01, starting with VIN number JTDDY32T#10049042. Additionally, the TRD
quickshifter should not be installed on 2000-2001 Celicas that were retrofitted with the update kit, as instructed in the 9/14/01 Toyota TSB.
