Here. The shifter cable broke on my 199 Chrysler Concorde.

Customer Question
Here. The shifter cable...

Here. The shifter cable broke on my 199 Chrysler Concorde. Had been a problem. When in park, especially if not on flat ground, get gears out of park was awrestling match.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Especially when parked on a hill pointing either direction getting the gears to shift out of park was a struggle. Today lost the struggle when cable obviously broke.
