My mother's '95 pickup the cast metal connection from the shifter cable to the plastic piece on the trans shift lever, broke in two pieces this morning, I guess 310,000 miles and 15 years of road salt will do that. But how does it come apart to change it? The cable is in a boot and I don't see any ready means to take it apart; it looks like the plastic piece might need to be changed too because of the broken off end of it inside. Appears to have snapped together, to me. I don't have a manual for these trucks to check out.

Looking at an AC Delco 15037353 on Rock Auto and it looks like the part that broke is serviced as part of the cable assembly? If that's the case I think I can replace it myself at least. Not cheap though, $63 their price.

Nobody's ever changed one of these or even disconnected one from the transmission eh? Looks like the part is Rock Auto or dealer, only.

Yes I have changed the complete cable out before.

Need to pull the seat and drivers side flooring up.

Lots of people have changed the cable. They often break at the end by the transmission, especially if the trans has been out a few times; the plastic tip tends to fail where it snaps onto the linkage. It's just a cable, no big secret to it.

When I swapped columns in my van I ended up wiring the top end of the cable on, it wouldn't stay on the little ball on the shifter. I don't know how much different a pickup is going to be, though, since it has the new style column in it.

The seat has to come out? That seems odd, I thought maybe you needed to take some of the dash apart to get the top of it on the shift linkage.

The cable routes above the floor on the driver's side, so the seat can be in the way of getting the carpet up so you can get the cable out. You might be able to get away without removing the seat, it just comes down to which work you want to do - remove 4 bolts, or fight the carpet like crazy with the seat holding it down.

The cable has an integral grommet/boot that hooks in on the driver's side of the transmission hump, just barely ahead of the seat.

How about: take 3 feet of picture hanging wire. tie one end to top of old cable. Pull old cable out through the bottom. Detatch wire, tie to new cable. Use wire to pull new cable back up through the carpet. No?

In any case the picture is a big help. What do the ends do, just snap into place?

Didn't even need to do that. No reason to pull the seat for this job, you can pull the old one right out and only need to pull the left outer corner of the mat up about as far as it will go to run the new one in from underneath.

Old thread but here goes.....

I just snapped my 3rd column shift lever. 257k miles. Its tough to pull out of Park. Checked out the brake sensor indicator and without it hooked up to the linkage, its still stiff.

Has anyone successfully lubed up the transmission select cable like you would a clutch or brake cable on a dirtbike?
