Final preps for a quick 3 month 'lap' of Aus leaving in late July, so bare with me as I fire a few forum posts to get through a handful of bits I've not yet sorted, or really know the solution to. First off the rank; a rattly gear stick. Ever since I bought my 75 bay window about 5 years ago it's always had a rattly gear stick. To describe the sound; it sounds as if a screw is loose in the head of the gear stick, but as far as I can tell the head of the gear stick (it looks stock) doesn't use a screw to fix on, but a threaded connection? It seems tight on and I don't think it's in the head but just sounds like it is. Another way to describe the sound is a fluffy rattly sound, similar to the sound a poorly lubed speedo cable makes. I can make the rattle stop but resting / holding the gear stick against my knee while highway driving but this is hardly a proper solution and I get sick of it soon enough. It's one of those buggy and annoying problems that I've never got around to fixing but with about 20k kms ahead it seems as good a time as any. Likely something in the gear stick assembly at the floor but I've never pulled that apart and before digging in would like an idea of possibilities, and also how hard it is to pull the floor assembly apart to see what's going on. Perhaps some sort of loose washer or something? Anyone else had this sort of rattle?
