    Default 6 Speed Box Wobble?

    Hi,

    I've a 6 speed gearbox in my car (2006 2.2direct) and I've noticed that when it is in neutral, if you wiggle the gear stick slightly it seems to be a bit loose.

    Is this common - or a sign of a problem?

    My knob is firm and does not move when jumping on the gas etc. This is the only car I've had that does have a moving gear knob under acceleration or breaking but then again it uses cables. Go ask the deal for a bit of knob waggling lol.
