Sorry, actually named the tool wrong, it's a 5mm star key, so the shaft is round and 5mm in diameter.
The 5mm allen key is 5.7mm across edge to edge.

If you are unsure on how to adjust the short shifter maybe send Forge a message with some pics of your settings?

In my case they have been extremely helpful in optimizing the settings on the short shifter!
Would you mind sharing those?

How would one go about locking the shifter in place if it's non-standard? I have a N-line, and swapped out the stock shaft for one for a Elantra, that does not have the rear "hook". Would just securing it extra tightly in 4th with a bungi cord work? The first post looks very similar to what Hyundai recommends for the 1.6T adjustment.
Also, how does one release the pink part? Does it slide or does it need to be pried up with a small screw driver, like a eyeglass repair kit would have?

Can't comment on the shaft but the pink lock is released by feeling around it for a gap, then press inwards with your finger. It will then pop up away from the grooves.
Edit, why not reinstall the original, then adjust, then put back the other one.

Hello guys! Hello @Jajodu !
I had problem only with the 6th gear and the mechanic adjusted on Friday the cables as you explain on your first post (thank you for this!!). It was (almost) perfect until today, that the issue came back, but not in the same level (smoother than before, at least for now).
Do you think it needs more adjustments? I am considering of changing the oil too, with a better one.

I used Red Line MTLV in my gearbox. It meets manufacturers specs. I don't notice my gear change now. You can get it from Opie Oils.
Can't comment on the gear change problem into sixth gear, it's worth checking the adjustment again, doesn't take long.

Maybe not correct to be asked in this topic, but is this kind of info available for the e-lsd?

Still nothing from my dealer, i think myself the pressure sensor is the fault.
If you look for drawings on the net of our e-diff you'll see it is all mechanical, the only electric parts are
the pressure sensor and the electric hydraulic pump.
As stated in some topic "air bubbles in oil" makes no sense.
I may hope that these extra outside lsd's will have a automatic air relieve valve.

(to mod's, if wrong topic please repost or copy to it)

My Launch X431v+ has an option for bleeding the LSD, so it does appear to be required. Here's some info on that component.

Well that's some info!, Thanx!

To bad that there is no info/advice which parts to replace,only the complete unit.

Like in the first post there is mentioning the fault, and the explanation to solve it.

If you go to PartSouq and put your VIN in you can see a complete parts diagram of your car.

Going to be doing a gearbox oil change myself, will one quart be enough? Cheers.
