Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help,
It sounds like the cable was not installed and seated fully where it connects to the .transmission. Can you inspect the end and see if it is seated in the holder and the spring clip is in the grooves holding it tight?
I am not sure how you replace a clutch without removing the shift cables so I will OPT out of your questions.
Sorry I could not help
New expert here, I can send you the service manual procedure for the shift cables.
