Have you checked the shifting linkage for proper adjustments ?

Have you checked the shifting linkage for proper adjustments ? I have not checked the shifting linkage. Is this located under the car? What would I be looking for once under the car? I understand that there is a bushing that is used to connect the shift module to the tranny. Is there a guide available for adjustments?

Under the car, metal rod between shifter and gear box, held in place with a clip at each end. Check that both clips are still in place cos if ones missing it could be trying to pop the shift linkage out. I don't remember seeing any of these link rods that were adjustable but don't quote me on that bit.
