Slack/loose/rattly/wobbly gear stick...gear linkages?

Hi all,
Have searched every thread I can find on similar issues. There is significant play in my gear stick when in and out of gear. Changed the top hat bushes last week (which were actually not too bad) but the play continues.
Other thread have suggested a bush in the linkage at the bottom of the gear stick but I don'tthink it's that as this area looks ok and there are no cracks or movement in the white plastic base.
When changing the top hats I noticed the play continues to the ball joints at the gear linkage under the bonnet. How would I adjust the gear linkages at this point and is that likely to tighten things up?
Car is a 2007 GT JTDM

Many thanks

It does sound like the base has had it, hard to detect from above
See my thread here for info.
