I noticed recently that my car is missing its mount - and it's been that way for a long time.  I wonder if this is a contributing factor to missed shifts.


Anyway, I found a spare one on my of extra transmissions, but it is a bit bent (holes don't line up).  Are the angles in it 90 degree bends?  (if so, I can put it on a vice and bend it back).  If not and I need to buy another one, looks like they are <$20 from Mazda.


Is there  any reason why this would have been left off intentionally?

Bend it and get the bracket in place. Check to make sure no cracks in the bracket corners. It was wrenched by a forget full person. :bigsquaregrin:

Missed shifts can be due to your poor shifting, failing syncros, Poor shifter bushing, (frequently a problem) Or shifter problem. If you feel a slight grind when shifting and you sometimes miss the gear that is the syncro.
