There are screws around the rubber boot. You can remove them and pull the boot up from beneath the carpet and see what is up. The detent collar is a pretty simple mechanism. There is a plastic stop that the shifter hits, and goes past when you pull up the collar. That plastic stop may need to be loosened and re-adjusted, or perhaps there is some foreign object in there that is keeping the shifter from moving to the end of its throw when you pull the collar.

On a slight ascent the gear lever jumps out of the 5th gear.


There is quite a long list of possible reasons and most of them require gearbox removal to fix.

Weak or broken selector detents, weak or broken synchrohub detents, loose, worn or maladjusted selector fork or mechanism. excessive endfloat in a shaft, gear or hub.
Worn synchrohub teeth is a very common cause.

It would be worth checking the external linkage for possible fouling or maladjustment first.

Turn signals


not sure what year/model nissan you have, but all pretty much work the same. the blinker lever slides across a spring-loaded detent. when you move it up or down, the detent falls in a knotch. there is a ring on the steering column that will release the detent pressure when it passes, releasing the lever back to neutral. most commonly it is in the blinker assy, that there is a broken peice.

How to remove the speedometer cable from the back of the gauge on a 1984 ford ranger pk truck?


I would try unscrewing the collar. if it does not unscrew i would try pushing it in and twisting 90 degrees then a pull. if neither worked i would get a mirror up there and see if there is not a detent inside the collar which needs to be pushed in while you pull the cable out. go with the assumption that it came down an assembly line and someone quickly shoved it on and it was good to go.

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee driver door will not stay open on it's own keeps drifting close.How do I fix this ?


I am Not EXACtly sure of the Detent Type for your Door But there are 2 Main type if it is what I Beleave it to be there is a Detent Roler and Heavy spring. And in your case sounds as if the SPRING has Broken this Requires Replacment of the SPRING. One Other type is a Self Contained Unit that Mounts In the Dooe and Protrudes to the INSIDE of the Door and Also requires Replacment of this Detent Mechanizm

The right front turn lamp does not flash if I put the lever in the detent. If I hold the lever just before the detent it works fine. ????


It sounds like the contact point for the lever is either broken, or misaligned. You may need to replace the lever to fix it, or you could remove the lever and open it up to see the contacts..

Fog lights


A detent is a "stop". The manual is telling you to pull out the switch until it stops. The rear fog lamp on my VW Polo works the same way. It may help you to know that on my VW (1) although the headlamps will come on without the engine on, the fog lamp requires the engine to be running, (2) the headlamp switch must be in the "on" position before you can pull it out to the detent position.
