Replace shift linkage bushing on 2002 trailblazer


All that was wrong with my 2002 Trailblazer was a 6.00 part my husband bought at PepBoys! It's the plastic grommet/bushing that broke that holds the shifter cable to the linkage...took him 10 min to fix!

My 1997 grand marquic will not go into park, im mechanic enclined, is there something I can do w the linkage


Most likely, either the shift tube is damaged/broken or the screws have backed out of the lever at the end of the shift tube that the shift cable connects to. If the shift lever feels really "floppy", then you probably have a broken shift tube. You will probably have to pull the steering column down to get a good look at the shift tube and see how much play is in the shift tube bushings, check the shift tube to see if it is broken and see if the lever at the end of the shift tube is loose (shift cable lever).
A little word of caution: If you take the steering column down, be sure to disconnect the shift indicator cable first so it does not get broken. There is a tiny screw in the plastic braket that must be removed then the cable loop will simply slip off of the nipple on the shift tube arm.

Anyway, you will need a T-30 torx bit to work on the shift tube, the shift tube bushings and the lever at the end of the shift tube.

I made you a graphic below to help you understand what I am saying. Please note that it is NOT necessary to remove the steering wheel to do this, but you will need to remove the upper steering column shrouds if the shift tube bushings are loose.

I have a Saturn 1999 its a 5 speed stick shift the bushing on the end off the cable attached to the stick is broken. should i buy the cable or change the bushing ?


You can't get the bushing. Cable only. and there are two cables to replace. Not that hard, but you will have to jack the front of the car up to access the cable plate that bolts to the fire wall.

Shifter is very loose, sloppy.


The shifter linkage has a two piece plastic / nylon bushing at either end of the gear shift tube that goes from the gear shift lever to the transmission. As the bushes wear through normal usage the gear shift becomes sloppy. The bushes at the gear shift lever end usually wear out first.
You may have to drop the exhaust pipe to access the underside of the gear lever as there is not a lot of space to work in above the exhaust.
To replace, remove the securing nut and through bolt where the underside of the gear lever U section attaches to the tube. Pull down the tube and the worn bits of the bush will come out. Place the new bushes in either side of the tube and put tube end back between the U section. Replace the through bolt and nut. If still a little sloppy, you may have to do the transmission end bushes as well.

Where can I get the grommets for the end of the manual transmission shift cables where they connect to the tranny, without buying the entire cable set?


This is a not uncommon problem, with a simple solution: replace the grommets (bushes is a better name) with pieces made from 1/2" polycarbonate. You can get a piece of this from a plastic supply company.

Get 1" rod or just a section of 1/2" sheet. Use a hole saw to cut some circular pieces. Hole saws have a 1/4" center drill. Stick a bolt in the hole with washers and a nut, and fit it to a drill press or similar. You can use a file to adjust the size to fit the end of the shift cables.

When ready, drill the center hold to 6mm, and use washers to hold the new bush in place.

The alternative is to have a machine shop to turn up new bushes out of polycarbonate, or some other industrial plastic.

1999 Saturn SL2 manual transmission stuck in gear, shifter moves freely. Where could the problem location be...under car or do I need to take out the console to locate problem


The problem is the bushing that attaches the cable to the shifter has failed. This is a plastic bushing and can be reattached if the tabs are not broken. You need to remove the console to access the cable end, the bushing goes through the plastic cable end and snaps on the ball attached to the shifter. There is a stainless replacement part available on line for $29.00 check satarnshifterbushing.blogspot.com

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.
