i was sittin in my car waiting for my gf.... bored i pulled my shifter knob off, hahaha, but really, when i put the knob back in place and gave it a wack to secure it ... tang!! something broke, now the shifter stick has vertical play of an inch at least, reverse is damn tricky to get, and if idling i can push down on it and can feel something grinding the bottom of it...... qurey: what did i just **** up???

You probably knocked the ball of the shifter out of its "cup".

+1 I think it would be the cup as well. If the teeth dont go back into place. Just get another one from the dealer for ~ 10 bucks,

Those messages gave me the confidence to get in there and pull apart everything and see that it wasn't the ball+cup. It was this rubber thing just behind the ball+cup that holds the whole thing steady, I threaded the fabric handle of my G/Fs alize bag under the ball+cup and just pulled up, pulled hard as hell and she poped back into place. ;) thnks.

The ball is not likely to come loose, It's held in by a big c-clip on the earlier platform version, and a screw in plastic clip/cup on the aluminarm version.
Aluminarm.... my word. lol
