Default beyond notchy shifter

any one else having difficulty engaging either 1st or Reverse when the car is stopped?
i know the xB has a notchy shifter, but this is getting ridiculous

no need to tell me i might be inexperienced with manual transmissions -- have been driving them for over 10yrs

ya putting it in reverse is the worst, just gotta slam it n i hate to say that.. i just try to take off in 2nd n not even deal wit 1st for the most part.. But if u take apart ur shifter n take out those soft rubber bushings that ur shifter is bolted to the car wit and bolt it straight to the floor it will help alot! or u can buy metal bushings from twm for 25$ this i hear is sapose to help in the same way.. hope this helps, n ya it is ridiculous sometimes

I have an auto so I don't know what you are experiencing but in all the manuals I've had in the past I've found if you put it in neutral, release the clutch pedal, then press down on the clutch pedal again, it usually synchs things up and it'll go into gear easier. Occasionally shifting into second before trying first or reverse helps also.

Only have trouble when I am parked and it wont go into reverse right after I start the engine.

Happened to me a couple times so I just wait a couple seconds and try it again, and it always goes into gear the second try.

ProTip: Turn over the car, put it as far into R as you can, start releasing the clutch while holding pressure on the stick

obviously go slow, don't dump it, after you get used to it you will just basically double clutch it and she'll go every time

I'm a delivery driver and this in my gen1 was something I had to overcome, before I broke the shortshifter right off the damn tranny ^ ^

Also on the list of reasons I went Trip for the Gen2~
