The shift quadrant assembly (106347) can be reused by
separating the glued assembly, cutting the slider, re-
assembling and regluing with the new shift lever (110095)
inserted.  The close out panel (110184) has been intro-
duced as an added sound and heat insulator and is not
required for the shift mechanism.
