On my Taurus 2000 SE the shift cable broke. I purchased the replacement
cable from Ford and attempting to install it by myself.
I was able to successfully remove the old cable and place the new one
through the firewall. The problem I'm having is aligning the square bracket
(that only fits in one direction) to the metal frame under the column. After
the cable is positioned at such an angle where I could attempt to fit the
bracket in place its on the wrong side and I can't move the cable to the
I have been told that the installation is suppose to be pretty quick so I
think I'm missing something simple.
I notice that their is a fuse box that could possible be in the way,
although I don't know how to remove it. The fuse box has one bolt on the
bottom that I can remove and something keeping it in place on the top that I
can't see. I don't know however if this is something I should even need to
remove to install the shift cable correctly.
If anyone could help or point me in the direction of some information I
would be greatfull.
