W124-722.443 Trans-shift linkage bushings

Replacing shift linkage bushings as per posted instructions, but have hit major snag.

The shift lever on the transmission does not come off. It has no bolt or capture mechanism from the outside to release it from transmission, and thus can not put bushing in at the bench. Looks as if it is secured from inside the transmission.

As this will not come off, having an extremely hard time getting bushing into the hole on the lever.

Any suggestions: drop pan and remove from inside to free lever from trans? I have the bushing pliers but can not get them to work with limited space to work from.

Stuck at the bushing on the transmission lever. Any tips or tricks?
