Re: Play in shifter .... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Depends on the condition of your rubber coupler and how worn everything is. I think I've had cars with that much as a "normal" condition, but the rubber coupler was probably tired and the linkage was maybe worn. It's not going to be like a late-model Civic, that's for sure. Or even a Corolla. It reminds me of the feel of a Kenworth road tractor, but less direct.
If you want to check a few easy things, you can pull up the shifter boot and inspect the three Torx screws around the shifter ball-and-socket. These hold a housing together that contains the shifter ball-and-socket and if they are loose, the assembly will have excessive play and shift-feel will be vaguer than usual. You can inspect the rubber shift coupling, but you'll have to crawl under the car and look for the rod going into the transmission from the rear.
