Worn Shift Bushings Will Cause Manual Transmission to Pop Out of Gear on Toyota Camry

On vehicles with a manual transmission, worn shift bushings can cause the transmission to pop out of gear, especially when coasting down in 1st or 2nd gear. Replacing all the shift linkage bushings is pretty straight forward and not expensive and will commonly correct this concern.

The control rod can slip off the bottom of the gear shifts ball joint anytime in any gear when driving. I removed the central console and pushed the control rod back into place one day on the way to the mechanic..at least 4 times. The plastic cylinder which appears to be the control rod bushing is worn.
