Hi, you have to remove the air filter housing, you will notice that the shift cable is out of place. It won't be sitting properly on the pin. You might want to check yours. By the way there are 2 shift cables check both.
Take care

1997 subaru outback make clicking noise on in reverse. Also, sometimes when the car is turned off, the car lurches a bit

does it click while reversing straight or while turning? Sounds like a stick shift. Lunging probably due to e-brake needing adjustment(if stick shift). If your car only clicks while turning in reverse you need new front axles and can probably drive that way for a while
