    I feel a "click" in the shift lever but it is not audible(yet)and I hear fine.Never posted anything as I thought that it was normal for the tranny.74K on her and she shifts like new.

    Master tech is correct, his explanation is a little off though... The click is a solenoid within the shifter that "locks out" (and re enables) reverse and park once the car senses that you are moving faster than a couple of mph and visa versa if it sense you slowing to a stop...

    Try to shift into reverse at 30MPH see... smart shifter... it won't let you... (TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK)

    Totally normal, barely audible, and they all do it... The click is a good trade off considering how easy the shifter would be to engage the big R...

    i'll have to listen more closely for this clicking. i've never heard it, but i've also never tried to move my shifter from D to R -NOR- do i ever want to try, even if there is a mechanism that won't allow it!

    I know I heard the clicking before my trans was overhauled. But I really do not recall hearing it since. Ill have to try and listen for it the next time in driving.

    My 99 with 78k does it as well. I can't hear it due to my music, but I can feel it since I ride with my hand on the shifter. It doesn't do it very often though.

    My 99SLS has that slight click, never noticed it when driving but when I put it into park a little after I hear the click.
