4matic tranny shifter bushings

Just a quick note on this job for 4matic owners. I found out yesterday from the shop I bailed to that I was correct, the 4matic shifter bushings can't be replaced both from below. The rear bushing can only be accessed from below on a 4matic by pulling the tranny or from above by removing the center console and shifter assembly. Also, the shifter bushings for a 4matic are DIFFERENT (thinner) than those for all other late model MB autoboxes.

I have a new bushing in place on the front but I have no rear bushing. It shifts better than before and unless I need to pull the console, I'm going to live with it unless someone can give me a reason to pull the center console just for the bushing.
