    I have an automatic transmission and my gear shifter seems to be loose. I can easily switch from any gear such as park, to reverse or any other gear without pushing down the button on top. This hasn't really been a problem except when i do some trail rides and it gets bumpy. The shifter often bumps out of drive and into other gears. Any solutions?

    No i havent taken it apart, basically for my lack of knowledge. I mean i expect it to have a little give but to actually come out of gear when it gets bumpy is pretty annoying
