Oh really, that's not bad at all. What about removing the cable from the ball stud? I don't know what that means or how to do that.

I think I'm just going to bend it out of the bracket.

Now when you say bend it out of the way, do I have to bend it out of the bracket, or just bend it toward the driver side while I loosen the bolts on the transmission pan?

Damn, finding those bolts are a bitch. I crawled under there and was feeling around on top of the tranny pan, but I did not feel any bolts. How did you manage to even get a wrench in there lol?

Yep, think that's what I'll end up doing. There's only two bolts on the pan I can't get to because the cable is in the way, so I'll just bend it to get to those two. I also saw a video on youtube were a guy just popped the cable out of the bracket...
