Gear Stick adjustment


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I was rolling around under my 02 TD4 estate last weekend changing diff oil and IRD oil, in preparation for refitting the propshaft. While I was waiting for the last of the oil to leave the IRD, I was trying to figure out what was the best (if any) way of tightening up the gear linkages?

I get its a landy thing, and it adds character and the surprise of never really knowing what cog you've selected until the clutch comes out! However, it's not a defender, and if you leave your hand on it, the box makes a 'I'm not happy' noise until you centralise the stick again!

The linkage goes seemingly everywhere under the car, with play in all of the ends, but there doesn't seem to be any way of adjustment, just a ball joint.

Any ideas welcome!

Cheers team
