As I was reversing my car to double park it this evening, the shifter linkage came off of the shifter and I was stuck in reverse. I pushed in back in place but after a few shifts it kept popping back out. Any tips on what part I may need to replace and/or how easy it is to solve this problem? Thanks in advance..

Honestly I took about 6 12" long zip ties, and somehow ziptied them down to the black bracket....<p>=(

Stainless Steel wire also works well. Something along the lines of thick fishing wire in diameter, but in stainless.

There is a great post on here somewhere with pictures, search around for it, seems like it would be very helpful.

Re: (Husker Z)

Yeah, for now I have it zip-tied down but I'm not really sure how long they'll keep it fastened in place. If I were to replace a part of the linkage/shifter assembly, what part(s) would I need to replace to keep everything in place and not have to worry?

+1 on zip ties. Far from elegant, but over 2 years and no issues.<p>-Sean Mc<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Edogg218</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><p>This is what the dealer did on mine too...</TD></TR></TABLE>
