[DML] Re: Car alarm/remote starter.

Another thing to watch out for is a broken roll pin on the shift
lever. The one that prevents you from getting into reverse unless you
lift the knob. I fixed one for an owner nearby. Too easy to wind up in
reverse without knowing it! I figure at some time in the past someone
did not know how to get into reverse so they forced it, breaking the
pin. Not terrible to replace, just takes a bit of time and patience.
While on this subject, every owner of a 5-speed should have an extra
pivot bolt in the car. Those things tend to break without warning and
it is hard to drive the car without one and you will not find one
locally! Cheap insurance. Even if you cannot put it in yourself, at
least if you have it you can get someone to do it.
