I've have done some crazy jobs anywhere from engine swaps to simple brake jobs. Changed everything on my last van 06 so consider myself a shade tree mechanic. Saw part online 60$ or so

4 speed or 6 speed they had both options

6 speed. 2010 limited t&c

Really not afraid of hard work just that google couldn't tell me if that part was behind dash or in engine bay. It has a electric harness on it so "should" be outside of transmission near shifter?
