hello and welcome to just answer!

I'll be happy to assist you. are we dealing with an automatic or a manual transmission?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Automatic. 2.2 L Actally, the only thing that looks bad is tthe rubber bushing that fit over the shift linkage, but I don't think you can get just thatm so I presume I need to change out the whole cable.
Expert:  Auto Go replied 7 years ago.

I appologize, I cannot locate a removal and replacement procedure for the automatic transmission. I will opt out and let another expert have a go at this one.

 

sorry for the trouble!
