OK ... here it is again .... my 2000 XK8 ... shifter works well on the right P to D side ... but when i go to put it in manual 4th I hit a hard detent and then it appears to be in 4th before it hits the corner .... 2nd and 3rd are aligning way to low on the position indicator ..... cable is allright ... can the shifter be repaired ???
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
or adjusted
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately there really is no adjustment on the shifter. If we are certain the cable is jot binding then the shifter will need to be repaired. The other issue is that these are not services as an assembly and a lot of the parts are no longer available. For the parts I recommend,,, or as they specialize in Jag parts.
