Yes it is!I've recently bought an 05 R and had the problem with the shift cable linkage this weekend, and came upon this thread and this site. It looks like the shift cable repair kit is what I need.
Is that kit still available and if so how much?
You can send a PM to Dictator and he will happily ship one to you. You can PayPal him....I need a kit, how do I get one PAYPAL?
John,A couple of days ago I got my goodie bag from Mike and yesterday I had the shifter cable fixed, the heat shield installed and the new radiator brace installed. So i figure I am good to go for a while. I will get a new radiator fan in the Fall when I am back in Southern CA. I must have paid over 30 % duty and taxes on my stuff. The UPS guy said the duties to Canada were crazy.
Yes, cable linkage is out of adjustment, probably you moved cable to shift arm, a NO NO, Cable must stay in position while installing Shift Cable Repair Kit.Dicktator, my shift cable broke in the driveway, the transmission end. I used my own parts to repair. I used a 1/4-20 allen bolt, an aluminum spacer, two washers, and a nylon locknut. After reassembly, the shifter know will not go all the way into park. I think the car thinks it is in park, because it will start. Is it possible that I need to adjust the length of the shift cable with that spring contraption on the end? If so, how would I need to proceed with that?
My shift lever is full forward in Park position but my SSR is in Drive....the lever wont let me move it....so how do I repair it when the shifter thinks it's in park but the car thinks it's in drive?
Please read the thread before asking questions as you are likely not the first to ask and the answer is probably already there unless you are the first to post. In this case the answer is in post #133 and this linkLast weekend I put my truck in reverse to back up to a gas pump and the engine died. The top was down and I couldn't remember how or if it could be raised up manually or not. Finally got it to a shop about midnight with a sheet of plastic over it. They started work on it about noon Monday and was finished by 4pm. Shifter cable was 76.00 and labor charge was 173.00.
