Default Should you be able to move gear shift from side to side in gear?

hello, I have a question for Civic drivers. With a manual trany, should
you be able to move the shifter from side to side while in gear? Mine in
gear is able to move 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch... is this normal or should I
worry about something wrong with the transmission?

thanks

Sounds normal to me on my '96.

I had an '84 Mercury once which used to have nearly an inch of play in the
shifter while in gear. Which gear you were in was more a matter of feeling
than of specifics.

having some slack is ok, as long as it is still in gear, remember the
shifter is not going down into the trany like a typical domestic, it is
linked forward so any slack would be in the linkage and so on.

If you want to tighten it up, get a polyurethane bushing for your
linkage (and perhaps a short shifter). The bushing runs about $10 on
ebay and takes about 5-10 minutes total time to install. The short
shifters are all about the same no matter how much you pay (I happen
to have paid $80 for an OBX with bushings and shift knob), and take
about 30 minutes to install with a friend. They take FOREVER if you
don't have a friend to hold the odd shaped screw/bolt things in the
passenger compartment.
