Stock 1LE shifter rattle driving me nuts, Help!
Have had the car since February, lots of fun. The rattle from the stock shifter is rather bad at low to mid rpms under any load. Installed the Dynapad kit from MGW on the stock shifter (inside the car). This reduced the other noises but just made the shifter rattle more noticeable.
I can reduce the rattle by holding slight pressure on the shifter, but each gear requires a different direction and pressure to reduce it.
Is it the shifter pin slop or the rod that is part of the transmission that tends to make the rattle noise? Can I shim the shifter pin and clips to reduce this? Do not want to use the sticky Dynamat in the AZ heat and gum up the link rod and shifter.
Any way to reduce the noise / rattle?
