6MT - Sticky Reverse Lockout


Recommended Posts

So, I've had this issue off and on for quite a while now. At times, after going into reverse, my lockout ring on my shifter doesn't want to drop back down. I end up having to jiggle the stick pretty hard to get it to drop. Anyone else had this issue or have a suggestion on a fix?

do you have a STS? Have you tried pulling out your shifter and cleaning out the rod & area around the reverse lockout? It can get kind of grimey, does it feel gritty when you lift it up and down?


Another thing that happened to me when installing my sts, was when i twisted on the knob it twisted the rod, which in turn twisted the shifter cable inside. Twisting the cable made it tight inside the STS, and thus caused it to get stuck.
