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.

98 jetta wolfsburg. Clip that hold cable to arm broke. When replacing the clip I had to jack up the clutch arm with a bottle jack to hook up the cable. The cable will not let the arm drop down where it...


It has a plastic Ratchet style gear at the pedal end of the cable that has to be released. This gear automatically adjust the clutch when the pedal is pressed. Never put a jack against a clutch arm. You will probably have to disengage the cable to reset the ratchet gear. Don't strip the teeth on the gear

04 Trailblazer Will not shift out of park. Shifter moves, no response. Starts fine, brake lights work, brake pedal switch is working.


Sounds like the cable from the shifter to the transmission probable snaped. It happened to me at the emission inspection station. What a nightmare. To check this you will need some help. Have someone set in the car and apply the brakes as well as the emergency brake just incase. Get under the truck and find the cable from the shifter to the transmission. Have the person in the truck move the shifter lever from park to another gear. If the arm where the cable attaches to the transmission does not move when the lever is moved it is the cable. They are relitively cheap and you should be able to replace it yourself.

Open the hood and look from the driverside, look back and down you will be looking at the trany and at the top you will see the linkage arm with the cable going to it, have someone move it through the gears with engine off!!!!, and see if the arm is moving, if the arm is moving then you may have trany problems, these tranys are known for problems, good luck. hope this helps. also heres a diagram to help you locate the arm at trany.johnjohn2_59.gif

The vehicle wont go into gear. It goes into the gears without having to step on the clutch but the vehicle wont move. Where do i begin


First you need to check if your clutch is moving. Does the pedal move freely and easily, or is there resistance? Second, does the throw out bearing arm move with the clutch pedal and cable or, when you move the pedal, is the arm sticking out of the transmission stuck in the pushed in position? If there is no resistance and the arm is not moving, you may have a frozen cable - there's little in the transmission to cause this problem since you stated you can shift into the gears.. You'll need a helper to push the clutch pedal as you push and pull on that arm. That arm will have either a cable or a small cylinder attached to it - I believe you'll find a cable. If that cable ( which is connected to the clutch pedal ) won't move then there's your problem. You may be able to lubricate it for a temporary fix but ultimately you need to replace it. If the cable moves fine as well as that arm then you probably have a broken disc in your clutch and will need to have it replaced. Unfortunately there is no quick fix if the cable moves. If it doesn't and you don't have any lubricating spray, get some oil from your kitchen and pour some on the end of the cable at the tranny and try moving that arm back and forth - you may need a screwdriver or other tool as an extension to help.
Good luck!!

Kicks up to high idle and makes transmission drop to low gear from drive.


Try lenthening the transmission kickdown cable located on the throttle arm of the air fuel intake assembly. There are two small nuts that have to be loosened and then move the cable up about a quarter inch and lock it down, good luck. Dana.

Same as above. Shifter moves but stays in park!!


Likely the shift cable has broken or become disconnected. Move the shifter and watch the control arm on the transmission to see if it moves. If not, check/ replace the cable.

Shifting column is not working properly, tranny is ok


Take the cable or linkage off the tranny. Push the tranny arm into park. If it is a linkage then adjust your linkage to match to tranny arm. If it is a cable with it disconnected see if it moves when you move the gear shift, The cable should move freely. You can pull on the end of the cable to make sure it is not broken. Make sure that your tranny arm moves in all gears. Please chalk the wheels so you don't get hurt.
