Depending on make model and type of play. Very often, there are bushings in the linkages shifter to transmission. You will probably need the car in the air, or jacked high enough to get under it. Dealer part, or may be found at some hardware stores.

Put transmission in third gear, loosen locknut on cam adjuster, turn adjuster screw whichever direction is needed to center shifter pawl by feeling for equal free play and spring pressure when moving shift lever in both directions. Tighten locknut. If you still have shifting problems, check for correct clutch adjustment, proper amount of primary oil (one quart), warped clutch plates or a bent shifter fork.

How do you replace a manual shifter from a 2002 Chevy Blazer?

I have a 2004 blazer and my manual shifter is removed by turning the hex nut just below the actual shifter clockwise. This may sound counter-intuitive as that is the direction to tighten but this spins the nut away from the shifter so the shifter is free to spin (counter-clockwise). So.... 1. Push boot around shifter down toward floorboard to expose shaft/nut coming out of tranny/gearbox 2. Turn nut clockwise to get away from shifter ( i used a small crescent ) i used a combo of 1st gear and reverse to get the right angles to fit wrench in. 3. Turn by hand the shifter (counter-clockwise) to remove. Or use pipe wrench with cloth around shifter to start the motion if stuck. Use a thick cloth to not scratch paint. 4. Nut and shifter are both free now. 5. This is also how you adjust the height of your shifter if you wish. Hope this helps

How do you tighten the shifter on 1987 b-2000?

Good ? but I have never in 23 years had to adjust the shifter.I have removed mine when doing a new clutch and so forth over the years and do not know of a adjusment that is even possible.The only choice I would know of is buy a new shifter from mazda.Check with local dealer to see what you get if you buy it.It has several components that the shifter works in conjunction with it.
