a few weeks back in traffic the gear stick went floppy, lifting the gaiter up showed the problem to be a rod that had fallen off a ball shaped joint and pushing it back on solved the problem.
It has now happened twice more and i'm becoming worried at the frequency of it happening, I have circled in the attached picture the rod that falls off the ball - can i buy a new replacement rod or replace the rubber bit to stop it slipping off anymore? Is it a common fault or has anyone else experienced this / found a fix?
I'm not entirely sure what the rod is called so I wouldn't know what i'm looking for.
All ideas and suggestions very welcome - I have no idea unfortunately!
