Default WRX Reverse Lock

Have a 2015 limited with STI short shifter. Reverse lock rattles and drives me nuts. Seems too big on shifter. Perrin and raceseng only make replacement for STI. Anyone know of any aftermarket reverse lock that fits? Anyone else have this issue???

Thx

maybe some lithium grease will help?

I can tell you the reverse lockouts have a completely different design between the 2015 WRX and STIs.

The Boomba Short shifter has its own reverse lockout. that's the only non stock I have seen so far.

Thanks. I'll give the grease a try. I sent some notes to Perrin too. See if anything is in the works

Grease didn't work. I actually slipped a "I voted" sticker and the rattle is completely gone.

I don't remember the exact conversation, but i asked raceseng about possibility of a reverse lockout and the answer was no due to complexity and cost to design.

Thanks amiexploited. Saved me a mess of working with grease. The sticker make sense as I thought it was just too loose fitting. I'll experiment with a few things..l don't have the appetite to replace the entire short shifter to fix this......yet

Wrapped a piece of electrical tape around shaft. Works great. No more click and clack.



Thanks for suggestion.
