Can anyone tell me how to perhaps fixed a stretched cable until I can afford to put a new one in it? Do I have to make adjustments at both ends? I've attempted to take the steering column apart before, but it got very complicated. Also, is there an easy way to disable the air-bag (steering wheel mounted) while I work on the cable? Please help. Steven
I would suggest replacing the range switch, first of all, as well as the shifter cable if you think it is suspect, and perhaps the steering column and instrument cluster as well. It sound like you have multiple issues both at the transmission and in the column.
There are a couple of reasons why a 1993 Mercury Villager is hard to shift. One reason could be a gear shift cable. Another reason could be low transmission fluid.
Front of the transmission, the thing the shift cable attaches to.
Shift solenoids are inside the transmission.
I need to repair the gear shift cable in side a 2000 toyota corolla. How do you get in side the gear shift box to repair the cable end?
Shift solenoids are inside the transmission, and require disassembly of the transmission to replace.
Usually, the complete cable must be replaced.
purchase a replacement cable and install it. its not reccomended to repair a broken cable
The throttle cable and shift cable on a 1984 40 HP Mercury outboard engine is installed by raising the access panel and locating the appropriate connectors. Each cable is then attached to the engine to control its speed and gearing.
You must remove the instrument cluster to do so.
The instrument cluster must be removed to replace the light bulbs on it.
I'm not sure what "shift kit" you're referring to. If you mean the type used in performance applications to firm up shifting I'm not aware of such a thing even being made for the Villager.
If you're talking about the sensor for internal temperature it's in the dashboard next to where the shift lever is.
