I'll plug it into my spare 6-speed and see if the gears hit the shaft if I can possibly remember.

I speak from experience, not from what someone else said. They are 100% swappable.

so i just got my 6 speed in too. everything is great and all but the shifter feels sloppy. do you have the same issue? i've read everywhere that the 5 speed definitely feels more solid then the 6, but it seems really bad. this is a brand new OE shifter that i just bought for it too. any suggestions or feedback?

okay after pulling apart my shifter again i found out i was missing the plastic piece on the bottom. i pulled it from my 5 speed but i can't get it to fit. i take that the 6 speed one is a 2 piece design?

The little plastic piece is a dealer item...take your shifter to be sure it fits. I've played this game before.

I had mine fall off too. I just pressed on it really hard until it popped on. Take pics if you can.
