    The retaining ring that holds the shifter into the transmission keeps coming loose. Its supposed to go down and twist to lock into place. Its gotten to the point where I'm having to fix it once a week. Please help as it is extremely frustrating when I am driving down the road and it comes loose, then I have to stop somewhere and take apart my center console to fix it.

    Yeah, i thought about gluing or just JB Welding it on but then I cant remove it when i need to grease it or if i have to replace to bushing. Have you ever had this problem with your truck?

    I got a brand new shifter hoping that would fix it but it didnt, so i used some high temp gasket maker around the collar and retaining ring and its all better:D

    Remove the shift knob, the pleather boot, then there will be two screws and two plastic clips holding the rubber boot down, remove those and lift the rubber boot off, then you will see where the shift lever goes into the tranny. You have to push down and twist the top metal retaining ring to get to where the new bushing goes. Remove the shitty stock rubber seat and replace it with the new heavy duty one. Then put everything back together in reverse order.

    No, it won't hurt it, I drove mine like that for months before I finally found the bushing to fix it. You just have to be careful your shifter doesn't come out when your flying down the highway like mine did. Let me know if you have anymore questions.
