    okay so the little orange thing that shows you what gear you're in broke off so i replaced it. I put the new one in, but i can't seem to find out where the shift cable attatches to on the steering collum. i know what you're thinking. "why didnt you just look where the last one was attatched?"

    well the last one wasn't attatched. maybe the whole thing is broken. anyways what am i looking for?

    Ok, it attaches to the lower most piece of the column that rotates when you move the shift lifter. Here is a pic to help show you. Look upward just about where the steering column bolts to the dash. It mounts to the right side of the column. [​IMG]

    To clarify, if you didn't find it,there is a slot cut in the plastic sleeve (that turns, as mentioned) and the metal clip fits over that. The slot is so you can adjust it correctly.

    Not all columns have a slot. There were two different kinds of indicators, one had a clip with a screw and that column will have the slot, then there is another indicator that only has a clip and that column will not have the slot but either way will work.
