2005 Toyota Tacoma Question: How do I fix that my Man trans shifter arm now can be pulled out of its boot

I'd have to see where it came apart to answer that. I believe they use a pinch bolt to hold the shifter to the stub in the transmission. Got any photos of your shifter with the boot off?

1/4 turn, locking cap on 2 dowles to hold shift lever ball into the socket, just like the old model domestic big trucks. Been using that style for years! (U know.) Might get lucky, you explain.
