1974 Super Beetle shifting is not real smooth so I ordered a Shift Coupler.  I have not looked at the mechanism in depth as yet, however I would like any help on what's involved.  Primarily is there any special tools to get coupler out and do I have to loosen the gear shift lever at the front end to remove the coupler?

Here's a page from SuperBeetles.com that shows you how to change the shifter bushing. I think that you'll be able to get all the info you need from this article.

I recently did that little job on a 74 standard beetle. It's more aggravating than hard but well worth the end result. It'll make you think you have a new car.
