2002 E46 330ci conv sloppy gear stick

Can any one help I have a 330Ci Convertible which has done 75,000 miles all by me I have to be honest and say I have driven it pretty hard now the gear stick is very sloppy I can still change gear fine but I want to sell the car and this would put a buyer off. So can anyone show me an exploded diagram of the 5 speed gearbox so I can see what if any parts may need to be replaced.
Even better if anyone knows what might be needed and how big a ball ache It may or may not be for me to sort.
Cheers all. used:

Pelicanparts sells a bushing kit and has a DIY on their site to replace them.

^^ I'm glad I could help. Definitely, the kit shows all the parts you need, with part numbers. Using this info, you can get the parts from a local distributor, or even your nearest dealership.
