    Sloppy gear shifter


    I have a 1997 Skoda Felicia Combi LXI. The gear shifter is very sloppy and I can't figure out how to fix it. I recorded the issue, please watch:

    I've understood that new bushing can make a huge difference, but the problem seems to be where the linkage goes into the gearbox, meaning the little "cube" in the video (don't know the name of it)? How do I attatch it properly?

    Or is it something with the gear shifter itself? I would Really appreciate so help in the right direction.

    Regards, Simon

    I can’t see your video but you need to establish whether you have the early or late system as it changed in October 96 so you could have either.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
