Arrow Gear stick.... sloppy. Fix?

2008, 1.3 diesel, manual. 70,000 miles.

Gear stick is getting a bit sloppy in the gate. Gear changes are fine but the gearstick is floppy.

Before I strip any interior or get the car on ramps to have a look, does anyone know if it's caused by worn gear linkage bushes/rose joints or something else?


Any advise appreciated

Hi. Not uncommon to be the pivot points of the mechanism..

Cables tend to upset the changing.

All from the GrandePunto ..

Re: Gear stick.... sloppy. Fix?

Pivot arms, gearbox end and/or level end?

It needs a new white plastic bush at the swivel. Fiat only supply the whole assembly 100 plus fitting. The bush is available separately from Poland 25
I will do this but seek how to disconnect cable ball joints.
