[ROVERNET - UK] NADA air conditioning compressor & sloppy gearchange - 2000 TC

As I recall, the P6 gear lever should be angled a few degrees forward (5
deg, if memory serves but don't rely on that, look it up) while in neutral.
Sounds like your lever mechanism has slipped and moved even further forward;
they seem to be prone to doing that.  I used to readjust mine periodically.
Check the manual for adjustment procedure.

Too bad about the compressor;  I gave one away last year but seem to recall
that it was a York;  don't recall the model number.
