Transmission Linkage

I've owned this bimmer for a while now and I'm really wanting to fix this issue. I've heard that its may be just a bad linkage o-ring but I'm not quite sure?

'84 325e

Here's a link of a video I shot.

I just did this entire rebuild procedure a month or so ago.

Look for my thread titled "an e30 joins the stable".

It about $130 worth of parts and Pelican Parts sells a rebuild kit with everything you'll need.

About 6hrs on jack stands.
