Hello all, my guide rod ball socket detached from the ball on my tourque tube and I have no idea on how to re connect it. This has locked my shifter and the car is immobile under it's own power. How do I go about re attaching the ball socket to the ball. Thanks -john

If you push it hard enough it will pop back in...but it has two bolts holding that socket to the torque tube.

The problem is the socket on the guide rod is pushed behind the ball and it's not easy to access at all. Would I have to take the transaxle out of the car?

I was able to take the shifter out and twist the socket up and over and then it just popped on by itself. The problem is I think I broke something with the ball socket because it moves like a quarter of an inch. Which i can live with I was going down the path of selling it anyway so I'm going to make it as good as can be for sale and not invest to much. I also saw that the parts I need will have to be ripped off a car because they are un touchable NOS and i dont really want to use used ones again. This was my first porsche and I want and need a more practical car for the mean time, if I was 10 years older I would keep it. Thanks for the help.
