Short Shifter Newbie

Recommended Posts

I just installed a B&M SSK and now having some problems. I'm kicking myself cuz I failed to do my research before diving into this project. I'm hoping to get pointers from the experts here. What is my best way out?

I'm having problems with one of the linkage cable falling out after installing the B&M SSK. It is the linkage attached to white plastic lever. I believe this is for the reverse gear. A nice photo shot of it is shown on page 12/14 of the DYI photo gallery below.


Everything works fine right after the installation then the reverse cable would slowly come loose. There is nothing holding the cable end in place as opposed to the shifter cable where it is connected by a ball joint. So the cable falls out when it moves to the right at all. It has nothing to do with the B&M since both pieces are from stock. What am I missing?

Can this be an allignment problem? If so, where can I find the allignment tool? Any help/suggestions is appreciated.

Yes - with the gear shift in neutral.

You can try it after you adjust it by shifting. I also suggest you drive the car around the block (carefully) before you put the console back in. That way you can make any needed adjustments without going through the complete console removal again.
