Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.
Ford does not have repair steps for the shifter, they are just removed and replaced when bad. Though I have had a couple apart and could possibly figure out what needs to be done. All 3 pictures were the same, can you explain a little better which part of the shifter you are replacing.
Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.
You should see a rating screen if I have posted an answer, not an info request.
Your rating is my feedback. If I don't get feedback from customers, I will not be able to continue helping customers here.
Rating me good, bad, or not rating at all does not effect the fee you have paid nor does it close the post.
Were you able to purchase just that piece or did you get a complete shifter assembly?
Your wanting to replace the shift lock rod that goes down the center of the shifter hollow tube, right?
Gotcha, its been about 6 years since I did this repair, so I hope I remember it. You already have the disassembled and ready to remove. Remove the shifter. On the side of the shifter is a squeeze clip on the the pivot shaft that holds the metal part of the shifter to the assembly. Work that clip off with a flat head. Then back out the shaft. You should then be able to lift the rod and metal bracket up, you need to turn the inner rod 90 degrees once unseated. Then remove and replace the faulty plastic rod and reassemble.
