What particular problem is this? The 2nd speed not engaging or engaging erratically? How old is the car?
It could be the bell housing (902413) has already worned out. Has this part been changed yet?
Before changing, you may want to try this. Set the 2 speed shoe and clutch bell (902413) spacing as per the manual on page 29, Step 9.2.
There will come a time when this resetting of the gap would not help and that is where you need to replace the 902413 after all when the wear is bad.
As a guide, set the two M3 screws to 5.5 to 6 full turns out after fully tighten and fine tune from there.
The 2 speed shoes rarely need to be replaced. Don't clean it using sandpaper or take out the aluminum bits that get stuck to the shoe. That's the secret to the shoe working correctly. Just clean to make sure no oil on it.
