Hey guys,

I read the thread that Howie wrote regarding replacing the stock shifter with an aftermarket one because of the rattle. Anyway, on my way into work this morning I noticed that I can hear a slight vibration type noise from mine once I get into the mid-range RPM's. I was thinking of taking a look at it myself, but I might just have the dealer do it (I have to bring the car in and have my wheels replaced anyway). I am wondering if something has started to work its way loose or something? Anyone else notice this?

Thanks!

I was doing great here also, until this started. I am in a lot of stop and go traffic and am constantly shifting. Sometimes I get sloppy and have missed a shift on a couple occasions. Not with harddriving mind you, just because of the traffic and watching out for the other person. :)

me too....

I am having this problem also. My original shifter had some bubbles near the numbers. The dealer replaced the entire shifter. Now I get the vibration while accelerating unless I keep my hand on the shifter. The dealer is replacing the shifter tomorrow. We will see......

That is a bummer that they have to replace the whole unit. I was kinda hoping that it was just something that had worked loose. *sigh*

Wasn't there another thread with an entry saying just that, something had vibrated loose in the shifter, and a simple tightening (and I'm sure a drip of Loctite) fixed the problem? I read them all, and it's hard to keep track....but it shouldn't be too hard to find with the search? :confused:

I did the search and read them all, and they had the shifter replaced just like I am doing.

Rats! Must have been elsewhere. I'll see if I can find it again. This stuff wouldn't happen with a Hurst or a B&M. You'd get engine vibration transmitted alright, but it wouldn't rattle.

The aussies have dealt with shifter vibration for years. Much good info on the Oz forum.
