Loose shift knob
93 Mark VIII - After I removed my center console to fix my o/d cancel wiring my shift knob is kind of loose.
It doesn't move up and down, but the shift knob can be slightly rotated left and right, maybe about an 1/8." Not side to side. It's solid in every other aspect.
The staple/retaining clip is fully inserted in the shifter. I removed it and expanded it, reinstalled, then tried compressing it a little bit, but it made no difference.
Everything else works fine. The shifter will cycle through PRNDL without issue, and it can't be pulled off, it can just be rotated clockwise/counterclockwise slightly.
It's frustrating, because this didn't exist until I removed the console.
Anyone got any ideas?
