1996 GMC Sierra shifter cable


Asked by Oct 10, 2015 at 08:05 PM about the 1996 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SL Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1996 GMC Sierra. I am replacing the shifter cable. I need help with the
connection underneath the dash. I don't see where it connects. When I pull the
shift lever down, I see a "post" moving in and out but it looks like I need it to
move "left to right".

should be a plate covering steering column remove 4 bolts you should be able to see cable linkage
