Mine busted loose today. I put a paper towel over the shaft, and jammed it back on. Temporary fix FTW.

^^^^That brought back a funny memory. Back in high school I had one of those light up neon blue plastic shifter nobs. I took this girl out on our first date and it broke off in my hand as I was trying to hot rod my ole Yota past another truck on the highway. There I was grinding away forth gear as the other truck puttputted away from me. I had to shift the rest of the night with just the stick. I looked like the worst manual tranny driver ever.
