Can't comment on the 201 chassis specifically, but the shifter bushing on the tranny arm end is the easy one. Removing the arm from the tranny is a 10 minute job (if you're slow like me - I'd starve as a mechanic). Then do it on the bench. It's the gear lever end I don't like - that one has to be done under the car.

FWIW I've found that softening the bushings in hot water helps, but have still had a very bad time installing them. I've cheated and trimmed one of the "lips" a little bit to make it easier to push into the respective arm. Despite being a decidely non-German way to repair the car, those bushings are not going anywhere anytime soon.

Dang things wear out every 12 years!
