shifter loose

'00 Supercab, 4.0 5 spd automatic 4X2 column shift with tilt
The gearshift lever is loose and sloppy, I have not taken the column apart yet, it still shifts thru all positions OK still
My Ford shop manual shows a useless diagram of the column parts, (it's the first edition BTW)
Has anyone repaired this condition yet?
Which component(s) go bad?
Anyone got a better parts diagram that what I have?
Thanks in advance!

More information, it's kinda like the early-mid eighties F series automatic shift levers in which the roll pin hole holding the lever in place would get elongated. In this case though, the roll pin or whatever device used to hold the lever in is not readily visible

Finally tackled this job today, found the shift tube plastic bushings (2) gone and the shift lever retaining pin holes elongated. Although you don't have to, I removed the entire column from the truck, makes it a little easier in replacing the tube. Must be a common wear item, the dealer here actually had all the parts in stock, seems as though the F series trucks has the same setup.
