ZF6 Stick rattle when no throttle?

I've recently noticed that my stick makes an audible rattle when in overdrive and letting off the accelerator. It may do it all the time, but just difficult to hear otherwise?

Upon gripping the stick, it stops completely. Could this be a sign for a bigger problem, or is it normal?

Mine rattles but it's because the little plastic circle that has the shift pattern on it is loose and makes noise. I'm not to sure what's going on with yours. Can you describe it a little more.

It's under the stick, somewhere between it and the tranny. Sounds like it could be a bearing or something.

Lets put this in context...

How long have you had the noise? (days, weeks, months etc.)

Did it start suddenly after some hard driving, or just slowly become noticeable?

Does the noise sound more like a dull clatter or a metallic whine?

Have you checked your fluid lately? (smell,color,fill level)

Hard shifting into gear?

Ever pop out of gear?


If it is not a performance issue, does the shift lever itself feel loose? (noticeable wobble while in gear)

3-4 days.
Did it start suddenly after some hard driving, or just slowly become noticeable? I'm not super sure. I'm really pretty easy on the truck (Hell, my clutch will slip if I try to open her up too much, anyway.), but I also usually always ride with the windows down, but it's been so hot lately that I've used the AC instead, thus it's quiet enough in the cab to hear it, but it's not all the time. It's pretty intermittent.

Does the noise sound more like a dull clatter or a metallic whine? It's more of a clatter, not really a whine. It literally sounds like what a loose cap on the end of the stick would sound like if it were loose, but it's not that.

Have you checked your fluid lately? (smell,color,fill level) I haven't checked it lately. I definitely need to. Is there a guide for this?

Hard shifting into gear? It's occasionally difficult to shift into first and reverse, but I've yet to drive a straight drive that wasn't that way, so it's not something I've worried about.

Ever pop out of gear? Nope.


If it is not a performance issue, does the shift lever itself feel loose? (noticeable wobble while in gear)

Not particularly. There's a little play in the shaft while in gear, though it's not anything I've notice differently from any other straight drive I've driven.
