Transmission shift cable

Transmission shift cable

Postby GMC1995 [OP] » May 03 2011, 10:35pm

I'm trying to replace a broken transmission shift cable, and I have most everything disconnected. However, there are two brackets (one by the oil pan, and the other under the steering column) that hold the cable in place. I removed the "horseshoe" clips from the brackets but the cable still wont come off. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? or maybe if forgot to do something?

Squeeze the ears in and slide the shifter cable back and out.
