See Figures 1 and 2
On 1982-86 models shifter linkage adjustment is possible. On models from 1987-96 there are no provisions for linkage adjustment.
- Raise and support the front of the vehicle on jackstands.
- Under the vehicle, at the shift control area, loosen the select stopper securing bolts.
- Shift the gear selector into 1st gear.
- Adjust the clearance between the control lever and select stopper by sliding the select stopper so that the clearance is 1.00mm.
- Torque the stopper securing bolts to 28-44 inch lbs. (3-5 Nm). Check that the control lever can be shifted without binding or dragging.
See Figures 3, 4, 5 and 6
On 1982-86 models all shifter adjustments are performed by adjusting the shift linkage. On 1987 and later models the shifter and shift linkage is not adjustable. If a problem is suspected with the shift mechanism locate and replace the worn or damaged component.

This procedure applies to all models equipped with a clutch interlock switch
- Pull the carpet up and back from underneath the clutch pedal assembly.
- Verify that the clutch pedal height is properly adjusted. The measurement is from the floor pan to the top of the pedal pad.
- Inspect the clearance between the end of the clutch switch threads and the rubber stopper. This clearance is referred to as clearance C . The measured clearance should be 0.012-0.039 in. (0.3-1.0mm).
- If clearance C is not within specifications, the switch can be adjusted by loosening the locknut and screwing the clutch switch in and out.
- Once proper clearance is obtained, tighten the switch locknut to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
- Place the carpet down underneath the clutch pedal assembly.
- Replace the floor mats.
- Check the clutch switch for proper operation.
