My nylon bush has pulled out about 4 times. I drilled a big hole in a small plate, then ran a u-bolt underneath the gearbox, that holds it in nicely....
My XF has that much slop as well, I think it just might be normal.
If you read the new Street Machine, they have an article on the new sequential shifter for the 'boxes. This would get rid of the movement!!
