As mentioned before, I have the same symptom as Phil, except that in my Lago
Blue 200q20v sedan (is it the color?) it is only in the forward-throw
gears -- I imagine 1,3 & 5; but honestly, I don't keep her in 1st long
enough to tell.

I, too, can eliminate the noise by pulling up on the shift knob. This is NOT
the throwout bearing (BTDT).

My shifter is also on the sloppy side.
