Help With a Shifter Issue.

Hey everyone,

So i got a Mopar Pistol Grip Shifter for my '11 SXT Auto for christmas from speedlogix, and while following the instructions that i got with it... It doesnt seem to want to go any lower on the shifter shaft than it will go... Which is almost nothing. I have no idea whats up.. It looks like the little U bracket on the inside of the shifter that connects to the shifter shaft is too small for the actual shaft... What doo i do.. I took some pictures to show what i mean.

Looks that it is in as far as it should be. The bottom inset ring you are pointing to should be for the boot when you zip tie it (from underneath) to keep it in position. Of course...this is a 6 speed guy chiming in - just stating what I see.

From the instructions that i got (and other pictures of people and their installed shifter) it looks like it should be lower.. and the U slot piece still has lots of area for it to slide into.. So thats why im a tad concerned, I can pull it off with a little bit of strength and wiggle it a bit...

Okay, so i went back, kept your zip tie idea in mind, and hammered it down (JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE) so it didnt really wiggle.. (i did this much.. harder than the first time) now it seems to be working well and settled well. All set up too.

Thanks

i can see in your middle pic, the shaft isnt seated all the way up in the channel, it will go down more,tap it with a soft mallet...

Tried, using my wallet as a pad between the mallet and shifter. Never went much farther than that. Its sturdy though. Doesnt wiggle.

Looks to me like when they tack welded the stop piece in the first pic, they could have sit it up flush in the channel, instead its about a 1/4 gap which is about what you have at the bottom.

When we install these we normally have to give them a pretty good wack to get them to settle down into place
