Trying to Restore my 96' to mint---

I have a real nice 96' Z28, I have a few issues... for one the shift **** is all wobbly on the shaft... the shaft bolts to the little **** out of the trans with 2 bolts, the ball on top spins freely and doesn't seem to come off.. secondly, my ashtray cover is broken , cant seem to find a replacement anywhere... And Finally Trim for the doors, My drivers window and trim have about 1-2mm of separation and when its really windy and rainy (I live in Florida so every day) it lets little dropplets in and i can hear wind noise hitting 60-80mph+... Please Recommend places to find these things (oh and anyone else have issues with Drivers window Like Coming off the track-- Like i have to assist it up and slide it back sometimes) (i have seen about 6-7 Z28's 95-96 have this issue and would like a recommendation on how to solve this issue...)

Wrong forum... this is for 5th Gen (2010-2015) Camaro.

Moving to "General 67-02 F-Body Tech".

You mentioned the shift **** is a "ball", what color? The problem of wind noise and water leaking sounds like the window glass needs to be adjusted. It could also be why you have to assist the window up. I would suggest opening up the door and checking for something loose or broken. Have you tried ebay for an ash tray lid?

Shoebox (shbox.com) has a procedure for adjusting the window.

Maybe a vacuum leak? That would allow it to run in speed density mode (no maf) but have trouble with the maf enabled.

His problems include a loose shift ball, a broken ashtray cover, and loose window trim. Not sure what that has to do with a vacuum leak.

Doesn't really matter. He posted, came back and signed in 12 hours later, then has not returned and signed in for the last 3-1/2 months.

Weird. My comment ended up in the wrong thread somehow. This was supposed to be in the thread about the maf/idle issue.
