Stuck shifter


Recommended Posts

Just started happening on my 2000 Boxser 5 spd.

I can move easily between R, 1, 2, 3, 4 easily and the action is the regular punchy precision we all love about these cars :-).

If I go into 5th, that is ok but when I come out, the shifter stays hard right in the center of 5th/R and it takes a hard tug to pull it over to center. Then 1, 2, 3, 4 are ok. This is repeatable every time since it started. No noise/grinding when it eventually moves.

Any thoughts?

Cheers, Mark.

Bumping this post. Any thoughts before I take it down the the $1000 slot machine (aka the dealer). :o

Thanks!

No, everything is standard. It started happening out of the blue but now is consistent. It is less noticable when going from reverse to Neutral. Going from 5th, it gets stuck over to the right and needs a solid tug to bring it back to the central location.

Thanks Loren. I did just borrow that tool. There was a slight alignment issue (slightly to the right, slightly back). 1,2,3,4,r seem a little smoother. It still gets stuck.

To clarify, when I go into 5th, I can get the leaver easily back to center in the front/back direction but it sticks over to the right. To double check, I unhooked the blue surrounded cable (responds to left right movement), pushed it in (corresponding to moving lever right) and then pushed the stick forward to correspond to 5th. When I pull the stick back again, the blue surrounded cable just stays where it is. It needs a go knock to get it back - almost feels like some teeth are out of alignment at that point.

Looking at the other end of the cables, there is no play in any of the joints.

Sound like a broken tranny?

With this car being 8 years old, what view do you think Porsche will take with regard to warranty of drive chain?

Is a tranny replacement straight forward (apart frrom the huge $$$ of the replacement)

Thanks, Mark.
