My shifter seems to like to be pretty mobile in the forward and back area whilst sitting in neutral. Stays in gear fine. Doesn't grind. And doesn't have a problem with lateral play. All of the mounting screws are tight as well. :biggrin:
Any suggestions?


Thanks

Probably a worn bushing inside the connection where the cable snaps onto the shifter arm. Pull the shift boot and check it.

Check under the car where the shift cable meets the shift tower ON the transmission. You will see two cables, look at the connection and you will see the cable end is supposed to have a bushing on it.
