Question Shifter linkage spring (near the bushing)

I was under the car last night and noticed that there is a small spring attached to the plate that holds the shifter busing in place on my 98' L.

This spring was absent on my previous RS and WRX so I was wondering what its use was and should it stay or go?

TIA,

-Mike.

IIRC the shift linkage is different on the L then on the RS or WRX. I wouldnt tamper with something like that. Also this thread belongs in the transmission forum.

Thanks.

Put the thread in here since I thought most people in the tranny forum would say "Hmmm... my WRX doesn't have that" and I'd get nowhere.

Moderators, move this if you need to.

Any other opinions on the spring?

-Mike.

It's an external return spring that was moved to inside the trans on the later cars, but the washer plate still has the hole for it so it looks like something is missing. If it's there, don't touch it, if it isn't don't worry.

Thumbs up

Thanks mulder!

Reminds me of when someone was trying to explain how to adjust the clutch engagement on a hydraulic clutch, and mine is a cable.

Just have to get used to the differences, I guess.
