Had plenty of spanner time yesterday.
Have a sloppy gear lever, I can move it about an inch when in gear.
I figured the ring that the gear lever sits in was broken or even more likely the bush a bit up the gear lever.
For all sorts of reasons didn't get working properly on it until sunday evening.
Dropped the central tunnel, while the selector cables in the engine bay were disconnected I did the top hat bushes replacement and lubing on that end.
Then got round to taking the gear lever housing off the central tunnel and by the time that was finished it was getting pretty late. Inspected the suspect ring and bush visually and it seemed ok.
Needed to get the car back together to make it to work this morning, so opted not to take it apart any further.
So started fitting everything together again. Anyone else thinks that central tunnel could easily do with fewer fasteners? My kingdom for a bridge or pit...
Anyway, got everything back together, everything works, gear lever still a bit loose for my liking but made it to work this morning.
Let's be charitable and call it a success of some sort...
