I am wrapping up my 02 outback trans swap and the shifter has a slight problem. It doesn't want to stay down. It is like whatever retains the shifter in the linkage is not working right. Does anyone know of a link to an exploded view of the shifter assembly for a 02 outback 5spd?

Either that or a description of how/what to do to keep the shifter in place. It wants to pop up when you shift the gears.

Sounds like the rear shifter bushing.

That little "peg" at the far right of the picture goes into a bushing bolted to the tunnel. Usually side to side play is a result of the "fork" at the left having worn bushings.

If you end up needing to replace that, I highly recommend a kartboy shifter bushing.

Based on your picture, the shifter stick that extends into the cabin of the car is coming out of the socket in the lower rod. It is not the peg on the right of the photo that is the problem, rather its whatever holds the shifter stick into that socket on the lower rod. I need to know what holds the stick into that socket. Apparently all that is holding it in right now is gravity!

That is very helpful. Does anyone know if the part # 031524000(1) is a snap-ring or something else? I don't remember removing one, but it has been quite a while since I took everything apart. That looks like what retains the shifter.

There's a snap ring that holds the pivot bushing in. Don't know a part number offhand but it's a basic internal snap ring. Should be able to pick one up at Lowes in the hardware section.
