Morning all. I wonder if anyone can explain the fix for a vibrating gear stick? My old, conventional gear stick has been vibrating for a while (nearly as long as I can remember) and you can sort of feel the vibrations in the floor pan. Now that I've swapped over to a trigger shifter it's decidely more noticeable as the trigger bit sort of sings when you drive along.
I recently replaced the front bush on the gear stick so I don't think it's this. Cold it be that the other bushings need replacing too? (The ones where you have to drop the engine), or could it be something more serious? As a bit of background information the gear box was rebuilt around 5 years ago and the engine about three years ago.
A google search on "vibrating gear stick" revealed that it appears nearly every car in prodction has had this problem at one stage or another with fixes recommended ranging from replacing bushes, to replacing engine and gear box mounts, to misaligned gearboxes. I hope this in an easy fix in a kombi...or even better that someone tells me it's nothing to worry about.
