Vibrating/rattling shifter


Recommended Posts

Usually, when the shifter vibrates, its either a topside issue or bottom side issue. First the shifter 'cup' that pokes through the tranny hole has spacers, washers and a spring in it. Pull up on the lever ... if there is more than about 1/16" of play, something is worn or missing.

Underside is typically the shifter platform. Worn rubber mounts, mounting hardware that is not tightened or missing, or the angled support that props the end of the platform may not be fastened correctly.

There is an early shifter and a later shifter. Didn't notice what car you drive but the key is finding a diagram, possibly at RealOEM.com and making sure that every piece is there.
