    It has gradually gotten a looser.... maybe an inch of play ?

    Transmission still goes into gears properly so no functional issue. I would just like it tighter.

    Anyone else ?

    15whtrd I tried being reasonable, but I didn't like it.

    Curious if it’s on the hinge point on the column. Check the selector under the truck to see if that’s where the play is.

    Check out the gearshift bushing, it's an easy fix. I fixed mine with a bushing from - bushingfix.com. Found it on youtube.
    It's a pricey little bushing but easy to repair.

    I checked my play and its about the same around 1”. Not sure if thats normal or from age as the manual does not spec this measurement. Hard to tell after 16 years.

    Nothing specific to Tundra. Plenty other Toy models though. I’ll wait to see someone else do theirs. Not a problem for me right now.

    I ordered a bushing for the 02’. I’ll report back when installed. Steep price for a bushing at $25, but maybe avoid steering column stripping?
