Is slapstick a lie?
« on: August 31, 2018, 07:34:28 PM »
My console says “slap stick” but it will not slap 1 to 2, and 2 to D.

Taking it out shows why...the keying doesn’t seem to support it.

Top picture is in second gear. The “key” is obstructed.

Bottom picture is frost gear. The “key” is also obstructed.

Slapping works from R to N to D. And from D to N.

But why not 1 to 2 to D?

What lube is best? Lithium white grease spray, actual grease from a can, etc?

I don’t think any about of lube is going to get this key to slide out of second into D...

And yeah, I did already spray grease before I did a deep cleaning.

What the f.

Not left or right....

T=handle but I believe the operation is the same... Reverse to Neutral does not require pushing the button. 
Notice the slight pull back required to go 2nd to 3rd

"Notice the slight pull back required to go 2nd to 3rd "

When the shifter is working properly you shouldn't need to pull back..... Take the pressure off, yes, pull back.. No...

Mine does not support that 1 - 2 - D like his...

I can make a video. There may be a worn part or a part missing. The fact that from 2 to D requires a slight backwards actually leads me to believe that the plate is cammed....mine is not...

Early A66. I hope I can figure it out.

Try backing the push button out a couple turns... Then try shifting...

How can the detent over come steps like shown in the picture. Isn’t this basic physics?

The only what is if the “plate” enters some sort of mode when shifted into 1 or 2, where the plate is automatically lowered so that the detent can “ride up” the steps. Or if it’s a more complex mechanism and is cammed...

(Shifter detent in “N”)

Button is already at .4” height per FSM...

Moved the button to .65” height (looks funny) and didn’t help.
