My stick shift seems to have disengaged. Anyone have knowledge?

Check the linkage and rear mount.

Thanks David, I going to embark on the task of removing the drive shaft. If worst comes to okay, do your know where I can buy the parts to rebuild the shift linkage, or... do you know where I can have the gear box rebuilt.

I believe Metric Mechanic does a great rebuild, the only problem is that the cost is more than many members pay for their E21... The linkage and rear linkage mount are not a big deal. Check RealOEM.com for the part numbers and I was able to source everything I needed through PelicanParts.com.
