You have to take the plastic panels around the streeing wheel off (it's pretty easy). The cable is sold as a complete assembly. There is a plastic coupling on each end and ususlly, the end next to the transmission breaks. The internal plastic falls out and the cable slips off the trans. shift pin. You can fix it without replacing the cable, if you can find the correct size "E" clip to hold the transmission side of the cable to the pin attached to the transmission. Just look at the transmission side of the cable and you will see what I am refering to. It's pretty easy to access from under the hood (pass side). Just look and you will see the loose cable that has popped off the shift pin. I just happened to find the correct E pin and it worked. If you buy a nes cable assembly, it will probably cost around $68-retail.
Wholesale cost is around $35. I was going to replace the shift cable, but the clip seems to be working fine and I have not had a problem...

    This happened to me in December 2010. Go to Home Depot and by a plastic end cap (I forgoet which size I needed). Open the small panel on top of the steering wheel to release the transmision shifter and put it in Park (provides the most slack in the cable). Reach in the engine, put the cable back on the pin, and put the end cap on the end of the pin to prevent the cable from sliding off. Problem solved for little over $1.

My gear is stiff and experiencing a difficulty when engaging second gear. other gears seems to be fine but the shifting is not smooth.


I suspect that it will be in the shift mechanism
If it is a cable shift then replace the cable
If it levers or other linkages check and adjust or lubricate as required
I doubt it is in the clutch as you haven't mentioned difficulty in selecting first gear only shifting from 1 to 2nd.

How difficult is it to change the shifter cable


1

Take the rubber boot off the gear shift inside the vehicle and lift it up, exposing the area where the gear shift and the transmission connect.
2

Look for the shift cable and the shifting arm. A single bolt and nut connect the shift cable and shift arm.

3

Twist the nut connecting the gear shift and the transmission. Use a socket wrench and remove the gear shift. Use an open-end wrench to loosen the nut holding the shift cable and the shift arm together.
4

Slide off the sleeve on the shift cable and loosen the shift cable at the other end with an open-end wrench. Both ends of the shifting cable attach to the shifting arm in different locations.
5

Hitch the new shift cable to the 2 anchor points on the shift arm using the same bolts and nuts. Reconnect the gear shift to the transmission and push the rubber boot back into place around the gear shift inside the car.
6

Test the functionality of the shifting cable by moving the gear shift in and out of gear.

Gear shift stuck


If you look down at the trans where the cables attach to the shift tower, the cable sheaths also attach to the transmission with black metal sheet metal clips. Sometimes the clips come off and the cables are loose and it is very hard to get into and out of gear. If that is the case then you need to get new clips. If that is not the case then more than likely, you need to replace the shift cables.

Remove the clips that attach the cables to the shift tower and you should be able to run the transmiaaion through the 5 forward gears and reverse...if that is OK the it's the cables...if not then it is internal to the trans.

    Clucth not disengauging....


    try this.you have 2 shifter cables.one is select cable the other is shift cable.first put the transmission selector lever in neutral.then move transmission shift lever to 4th gear.depress clutch to if necessary to shift.move the shift lever to the 4th gear position until contacts stop.then you turn the adjuster turn buckle so the shift cable eye aligns with the eye in the gear shift lever.when installing the cable eye. make sure the flange side of plastic bushing at the shift cable end is on the cotter pin side.the cables should be adjusted so the clearance between the shift lever and both stoppers are equal when the shift lever is moved to 3rd and 4th gear. move the shift lever to each position and check that the shifting is smooth.
