another reason to convert it to manual or sell the ea.

have you pulled the console out to see if theres a loose bolt or something yet? when you pull it all out you should be able to see the top of the box, and shake the stick around to see where the problem is.

there is a bolt at the bottom of the stick, where it pivots under the console.

tighten that up. should fix your problems.

I have been meaning to get around to nipping mine up for a while now.

Yeah the shift kits works nice, i got it turned up just over half way and its chrips into second and jumps from 80ks to 95ks when it changes. Makes the gearbox feel stronger and the downshifts are heaps harder also.

You may also need to replace the gear shifter bushes too.
