Time to get another shifter. Try Billet Products. They have a lifetime warranty on their shifters.

I'm not sure if the BA T5 gearboxes have changed since the E-series. If it's an insulator, it could be to stop the heat transfer from the box to the shifter. From reading over the many posts on here, the standard shifter becomes sloppy after a while. Did you have the stops adjusted with the rip shifter? What brand was it?
