Question WEVO Shifter Help

The WEVO guys are out of the country for a few weeks, so I thought I'd put it to you guys. I had to remove my Shifter & E-Brake to access the throttle bushings and replace. After doing so, I put back together [thought I put shifter back in same spot as I marked with Tape and Pen Markings.

The car shifts into all gears [including reverse]. However, there is a tremendous amount of slop in the shifter, now. Also, all of my bushings and the joint are only about 2-yrs old, as I changed them with the shifter...

I've attached a video https://youtu.be/487Ke29yjro
of my predicament. Can anyone tell where my problem is right off the bat [with the video]?

Thanks, Shannon

Did you check all the bushings between the shifter and the wevo to make sure they didn't become dislodged? That's what it looks like to me.

These are the only bushings/connections that I know of...

Yeah, I was thinking if #10 popped out, it would cause slop like that.

Maybe it did "pop out" will need to verify - - thanks!

If you have access to a borescope or camera on a flexible arm, you can view that bushing via the shifter adjustment coupler plate on the trans tunnel without removing all sorts of console parts

Looks like consensus is: the shift rod bushing may have come dislodged in the re-install... Sounds plausible. Unfortunately, leaving town tomorrow for the beach.

Will check the bushing when i return and report back. Thanks a bunch!

Turns out the culprit was #9. I must not have 'snapped' the shifter into this part before assembling.

Also noticed that my shifter assembly "spacer" may have been creating too much space between these two parts, so I removed the spacer. Had to get a shorter bolt for the rear of the shifter as the original one was binding on the shift rod [due to decreased space from spacer removal].

All-in-all, the shifter now works like a charm! Took 45-minutes

Yeah it takes a good amount of force to get the end of the shifter into #9, ball kind pops into the socket. But once it's in it's usually in solidly.
