GEARSHIFT CABLE REMOVAL: Remove cable eyelet attachment from transaxle operating lever pin. Using pliers, squeeze ears of cable conduit attachment at mounting bracket and push through hole to remove. Remove the under instrument panel silencer. At the steering column attachment, remove the cable eyelet attachment from the shift lever pin. Using pliers, squeeze ears of cable attachment at mounting bracket then push through hole to remove. Unseat the dash grommet and remove the cable from the vehicle. ADJUSTMENT: Lift and rotate the gearshift hand lever into the park (P) gate position and remove the ignition key. This confirms the shift lever is in the gated park (P) position. After confirming the park gate position, turn the ignition switch. If the starter will operate, the park gate position is correct. Move the shift lever into the neutral (N) position. If the starter will operate in this position, the linkage is properly adjusted. If the starter fails to operate in either position, linkage adjustment is required.
