my gear stick has just gone loose, the gear box seems to be working as I can drive the car, I think it could be the linkages? any idea on how much this might cost to fix as I dont want to get ripped off at my local garageDunno

Ur asking how much it might cost but yet you dont know what it is. If its a gear linkage then i would expect a garage to charge you an hours labour + the linkage its self. If it still changes gear fine then dont worry Thumbs up

You need to look inside the engine bay, down behind the gearbox. You will see 3 rods each with "ball" cup ends.

Make sure these are all attached to their corresponding "ball". If they are, and as far as I can make out you can get every gear so they should be, then my guess is they could be somewhat worn. Yes

Sounds like the rubber ball may have fallen off of the subrame swivel bracket, or 1 of the small linkages as the other guys mentioned.

Quick one...

Here's a photo of mine... When I reach down and give that big shaft from the gearstick a shake it moves up/down about 80mm.. Not good I take it!

What s**t do I need to replace? Is there supposed to be a rubber bush in that eyelet?

The round ball on the arm in this pic should be in the cylinder shaped piece on the end of the rod from the gearlever:

Didn't measure it sozNo

The pivot point is higher on the quickshift,there is a patterned part on the gearstick where the plastic ball sits that you need to take off,I've set mine so the patterned part is just above the lower collar on the quickshift.

The only downside to the quickshift is sorting out the lift up reverse cable holderThumbs down
I had to cut mine with a hacksaw blade to remove it off gearstick,you then need to use a small hose clip to hold it back in place on the gearstick,I also found after doing this the lift up reverse collar was not returning back down on its own,so I had to file some off the cable holder to allow it to returnRoll eyes

Important that it does return,otherwise you could select reverse when going forwards!Thumbs down

you might be able to use the cable holder off a 205, its secured by a roll pin.

LOL

A bit worrying, just as you shift out of 5th at high rpm looking for top gear!
