Shifter Shaft – MR2 Spyder 6-speed (Celica All, Matrix/Corolla 04+)
MWR shifter shaft for installing a 6-speed transmission from a:
2000-05 Celica GTS
2004-06 Matrix/Corolla XRS (does NOT fit 2003 Matrix or 01-03 foreign market Corolla Runx/Sportivo – see pic below)
2005+ Lotus Elise/Exige
in your 2000-2005 MR2 Spyder. MWR’s shaft is specially modified to work with ALL of these transmissions and includes the blockoff plug you’ll need with the Celica/Lotus applications.
These 6-speed transmissions can be installed in the MR2-S with the stock 1ZZ-FE or with a 2ZZ-GE swap. The MR2-S 6-speed swap reverse blockout (sold separately) is also required for install.
If you have a Matrix/Corolla 6-speed please be aware that you will need to drill and tap two M10x1.25 holes in your transmission case to complete this swap. Our instructions include detail for this operation. Also, see pic below to make sure that you have purchased the correct shifter shaft for your transmission:
