Just screw off if it's a standard MGF.

Strong grip and some torque (Popeye muscles) required though. ;)

Ooops, first read, then think then write.

Forgot the second part.
Cured the rattly gearstick syndrome with adding a thin sheet metal 0.5mm between sliding block and assy frame.
Other images and mpg files here. Scroll to to the middle of this page.

Aswell have a look to the ball joints at the gearbox. B&G sell the rear bracket with strong ball joints (as part of the SSK)

The same disussion was a couple of days? ago. Might be worth searching the recent archive threads
