After doing a search on the subject, I have come up with two areas to look at; the Shift Rod Bushings or the Shifter Bushings.
I'll check under the car tommorrow to see if I am missing the rubber part mentioned by Meza.
Thank you Haasman for your post - it sounds like this fix is for the Shifter Bushings. Am I correct? Is this fix from under the car?
Bach in March - Mike Tangas posted a fix for the Shift Rod Bushings on a W126 - would this be similar to the W201?
He covers the fix from inside or under the car.
I see that you are also from SC - are you on the coast or inland?
I hope to have this shifter problem resolved soon.
Good Luck all!
