Possibly the cable has worn a groove in the bushing. Do a search as it seems someone else had the same problem but with a forward gear. New bushings fixed the problem.

You don't need a repair manual to replace the bushings, I can send you a pic if it will help. Its basically just a little piece that holds the cable in place.

If you're replacing your shifter bushings, go with Boogers.

Home of the new “BoogerBushing”

Best bang for your buck, awesome, awesome feel, and you'll never need to replace them again.
