Default 05 sti shift weird

Hey guys,

I noticed when I picked up the car about a month ago, sometimes I can't lift the reverse lockout. But it'll go into reverse fine without it. Also, 5th and 6th isn't all the way to the right, it's slightly passed 3rd and 4th. I'm used to driving it like that now. But I don't know how to fix it. It came with a kartboy short shifter and bushings. And a Perrin reverse lockout. Not sure what to look for or how to fix it.

Get under the car and check the reverse lockout device - compare it to the FSM images. All the parts that break or become disconnected are external and easy to fix.

You'll find the reverse lockout in front of the front shifter bushing.

I got a feeling that the reverse lockout cable on the shifter end isnt right. My guess is that the pin on the perrin lockout is too high. might want to try and reset that.

Did you make sure the reverse lockout was specifically for your car? I bought one and it said it would fit Brz, Wrx and Sti. Little did i know it was really meant for a brz. Found out after i chopped off the top to try to make it fit. lol

D'oh! also the second zip tie should go underneath the car to tie up the shifter cable. might be rubbing on the drive shaft.

You think once I fix the reverse lockout the shift gate will fix itself?

Looks like I'm missing a piece under the lockout. Isn't something supposed to be screwed into the shifter

I don't think it's 100% needed - there were a few variants. Going off memory here, but I remember distinctly having two 6MT shifters on my workbench once and this difference catching my eye. Aftermarket reverse lock-outs can certainly cause some part changes, too.

EDIT:

The screwed part is just the cone that locates the (p)leather shift boot. The Perrin lock-out and the GpN shifter assembly do away with this fixed part.

you're not missing a piece its been replaced/upgraded. The Perrin reverse lockout is installed on your car. It's a single piece design that combines the factory boot retainer (which is what bolts into the 2 holes on that flange on the shift arm) and the lockout itself.

I'm going to try to take a picture under the car and see if something can be fixed. *update- there are times when I can pull up on the lockout, but when I move it to reverse it won't go in. And when I let go of the lockout, i can't pull it up again with all my might. But then without it pulled it goes into reverse with no problem. Shifter can move past 5th to the right. But of course there won't be a gear there. So I have to go into 5th slightly left of all the way right

So thinking about it. Since the lockout is stuck opened that's the reason why I can go right of 5th. Once I fix that problem 5th gear should be fixed
