: Rattle when shifting with my UUC

07-14-08, 07:55 PM
I have had my UUC shifter installed for about 12,000 miles. It was totally quite but now is starting to rattle on each shift and as I hold the revs up in any gear. It sounds like a click or snick almost metalic when I shift.

It seems to get better when I push on the passenger side of the console. I looked for loose bolts but didn't find any, although I didn't go underneath to check the one on the bottom. I don't get it. It is driving me nuts. :bighead:

Baked beans.

(j/k Other than a bump, I'm not much help, am I?!)

Sounds like the allen head bolt that holds the shifter to the linkage has worked itself loose. Tighten the nut back up and it should be fine. I would recommend a nylon tip nut so it doesn't work itself back out.

Anyone know the size of that bolt and nut so I don't have to take it off, measure, install, run to the store, uninstall and replace? Good call on the nylock. I will post findings once I get there. Thanks,

Dang it I don't remember the size.....it's pretty small though. Maybe Luke could help on this one??
