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.

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 remove gear shifter from a 1992 ford explorer after you remove the boot there is a threaded bolt with a nut on it I removed the nut but the bolt doesn't move it's threaded?

Move the nut on the shifter bolt from the front of the shifter(closest to engine) and put it on the rear of the shifter bolt. Tighten it as much as possible (did mine with a 17mm box end wrench). once it's tight, remove the nut and put in on the other side again (just enough to cover the threads.) A couple of quick taps with a hammer and out she comes !

Can you make a short shifter on a 240sx?

yes you can do this yourself by taking out the shifter and cutting it shorter with a saw. but then you will need to re-thread the shifter in order to screw a knob on. unless you have a knob that attaches itsself to the shifter with screws on the side. this is a ghetto way of doing it, but will work. or if you have $100-$200 to spend, simply buy a cimplete new short shifter off ebay, or anywhere and install it yourself which is a pretty simple job. take off the dash surrounding the shifter by popping it outwith a flat-head screw driver or your fingers. unattach the shift boot (the leather-like material surrounding the shifter. from here, you will be able to see the top of your transmission, where the shifter goes in. unscrew the plate on top of the transmission, and slide out the whole shifter. simply repeat this process in reverse to install your new aftermarket short shifter, making absolutely sure you are putting in the white plastic bushing at the end of the shifter that goes into the transmission, which ensures that it is secure and there is no play in the shifter.

2002 S430 Mercedes Benz will not move of out park?

Most likely cause is that you have a bad shifter module, which is the shifter itself. I've seen lots of these, try and play with the shifter to get it out of park, and make sure you have the brake pedal depressed. If you can get it out of park take it to a repair shop this way, and leave the shifter in neutral if you have to turn the car off, that way you can still start the car, and still move the shift lever to drive.
