Finished the 5-speed with Gil about 2 weeks ago. Thanks again Gil. My parents are visiting and using my 02. they were driving to the Hotel last night when "something popped or fell off and then there was a clicking noise". I checked out on my way to work (my dad already had the car up on my 2 car stands) and it turns out one of the bolts popped out of the trans flange / guibo and the guibo is rubbing the shifter shaft. hence the clicking.

I am not sure if I am just venting or asking for help.

I guess if I loosen all the Guibo bolts, put a new bolt in and tighten them up, I should be in business again? Right now the Guibo is not straight and almost zig zags from tranny bolt to shaft bolt. When I loosen the bolts and replace the new one, it should straighten out the guibo a bit. Is my shaft really out of alignment hence the bolt/ Guibo warpage problem in the first place?

any replies would be appreciated.
