No its right where the cable goes to the tranny. the ball joint. I can slip it on very easy. so now I wrapped a peice of wire to hold it. Can I just get that part or do I need a whole new cable?
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I think its the end of the 17?
Chevy Mechanic: Mike S., Chevy Mechanic replied 8 years ago
17 is actually the shifter end, do you mean the other end?

Unless of course you are talking about the cable being loose at the shifter end, then it appears that just snaps on. If it is still loose then you will have to look at in closely to find out if it is the cable end or that part of the shifter or both that is worn.

Look at this diagram I made from that one and tell me if it is what I marked with red 1 and 2 or a and b.

I was afraid of that. Look at that and see if it is actually welded on or what.
