There is a mount at the base of the battery that you need to remove before you can remove the battery.

Shift lever won't go to park and moves stiff even while pushing on metal lever on the side of the transmission


The first thing i would do is to disconnect the cable at the lever on the ******, next move the lever at the ****** by hand and it should move by hand with little force. if the lever is hard to move then you may have a trany shift rod problem. next with cable removed try to go through the gears with the shifter , the shifter should flow with ease if its hard to move then its the shifter cable or the shifter itself. to find out which one you will need to disconnect cable at sifter and then move the shifter to see if its still tight. if the shifter is tight to move with cable removed then its the shifter but if it moves with ease then you have a bad cable. good day.

Disconnect the battery cables.
Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. When the engine is cool, drain the cooling system from the radiator into the pan.
Remove the right inner splash shield and the accessory drive belts. Support the engine underneath and remove the right motor mount with the bracket.
Take off the front cover and remove the timing belt along with the timing belt idler pulley. Also remove the camshaft sprockets, the rear cover to the timing belt and the alternator with its bracket.

Make sure that the pump can move freely by rotating it by hand.
Replace all components in reverse order. Tighten the camshaft sprocket bolts to 75 foot pounds and the timing belt idler pulley to 45 foot pounds.

Broken shifter cable, how do i repair it


Put park brake on or block wheels, and shift into neutral (if possible), If not go to tranny and pop the cable off the tranny lever (pry off with screwdriver). Turn tranny shift lever, until it clicks twice, leave here for later adjustment. Follow the cable to the adjuster, pull out the flat steel retainer clip, pinch the sides to remove cable from bracket. Remove upper covers below the steering wheel. Remove kick panel below steering colomn. Remove cable from steering wheel shifter assembly (pry off and remove clip same as at tranny). Remove the side kick panel and follow cable along floor. You may find it easier to remove the driver seat (4 nuts on floor and wiring). Pull cable thru floor and replace. Reverse procedure to install. Lock the cable and clip at steering colomn, but leave the clip off at tranny. The tranny should still be in neutral. Now turn key to run and shift the shifter into neutral. At the tranny side cable there is a white square button, press in and lock cable to lever. install retainer clip. move shifter thru ranges and ensure it locks in park. Readjust if needed by pressing button and moving shifter lever on tranny.

    1995 Cadillac SlS Shift lever knob will not move, seems frozen.


    Put your parking brake on. Remove console panel. Put foot on brake. Turn ignition key to on position (Do NOT start vehicle!). Locate park lock cable (Parallel to drivers right knee). Press down on that cable with left hand while attempting to move shifter with right hand. Replace that cable if shifter moves out of park.

    Chev aveo, no heat when sitting still


    First....check your radiator...make sure its full. No water = no heat. Have you noticed that the knob controlling your heater has become much easier to move? If so, your cable may have come loose. Disconnect your Neg. battery cable. Remove radio, ac/heater control panel. This usually involves removing a few screws. Find your heater control valve located behind above items. You will see what looks like a plastic box behind the dash. On that box, you will find a cable mounted there that moves a lever back and forth. Make sure it moves the lever when you move your control knob. This is your heater control valve. While in there, look for any loose vacuum lines, connections, etc.

    A little common sense goes a long way.
    If anyone has been working on car in the same area i.e. radio..etc. this could cause one to investigate possible problems as a result.
