hey all! I have a r53 manual, and the gearshift has had a lot of horizontal play since i bought it. The shifter does not return back to center properly and moves side to side quite a lot even when in gear. I suspect it may be the guide plate but i thought id check with all you'se as to what you think.
And a small question to add, all the minis ive seen online have the large center console with a speedo, and the tacometre behind the wheel, but mine has the taco in the center and the speedo behind the wheel. Is this supposed to be a stock option for the 2002 mini s or did the last owners have it swapped for some reason?
Appreciate it

The "ball & socket" joint on the gearbox end of the cables often gives trouble, it is a non serviceable part & you have to replace the whole cable.
