    Kirsten, great to hear from you again! The Bird Nest has them for sale for $89, plus shipping & handling. Page 52, Shift Collar with Access Door for $99.95 Part # 7228A. You want to get a new one, not one that has been used.

      Agree that new is the way to go. Out of curiosity this used one I found... Good? Bad? Ugly?

        Kirsten, it is not pretty, but it can be cleaned up, painted to match what you have. The important thing is the inside of it. It is hard to tell if the internal elements have been worn down to the point where it might be in worse condition than what you have now. Are you wanting to swap out the collar to eliminate sloppiness in shifting or locking the shift lever into position on the PRNDL? If that is the case, it may be more than just a worn tip of the shift lever. It could be the detent plate inside the steering column or the shift tube selector at the bottom of the steering wheel shaft... Have you taken out the gear shift lever on the steering wheel to see if that rubber grommet and the metal tip of the shift lever is worn? If it is, you might consider swapping it out with a new one. I see that a new gear shift lever is $35.95 at the Bird Nest.

          John ~ jopizz confirms that not only does the tip of the gear shift lever get worn down over the years, but also the inside of the collar does to. You could try having it put on, with the old gear shift lever to see if there is any improvement, or with a new gear shift lever if there isn't... However, you might have to have it taken back off again, if it does not improve things, and replace it with a new one and a new gear shift lever....

            Thanks. Does the gear selector lens have anything to do with improved shifting or is that merely cosmetic? I have the detent plate and the new shift stick itself waiting to go on.

              Kirsten, the gear shift selector lens has nothing to do with improved shifting. It is merely cosmetic. I see you do have a new detent plate and a new gear shift lever to go on.
