Gears

First thing I'd look at is the shifter bushing that is about three inches from where the shifter shaft goes into the transmission. It is a sleeved rubber bushing, called a silentbloc in the parts book (#28 in photo). These commonly go bad, and screw up your shift pattern. The part I think is less than $20. On a 308/328 car, it is not a lot of fun to replace because it is located right above a non-removable piece of the frame, but it can be done. Not sure about a Mondial, though. The shifter rod also has an adjustable piece (#10) a little forward of that bushing, so you can play with that too, and try to get the pattern right. -Steve
