Asked by May 11, 2015 at 11:39 AM about the 2000 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. The shift linkage broke and I can't tell if it is the entire cable
or just the bushing.  I attached a picture to help figure this out

The end of the cable is broken off. I will find a picture of the cable. I am having a really hard time my ISP keeps cutting in and out

So you are saying that I would have to replace the entire cable? Is that something that can be done at home with little mechanical experience or do you think that I should get the cable and have a garage do it?

At that site there is a picture that looks almost just like yours. There are some instructions, and here is a video. I have never done one personally so I really can't say the degree of difficulty

I know this is a late response but I had the same issue and couldn't find much information anywhere on fixing/replacing the cable. I ended up still replacing the cable myself and decided to document the full process to help others who have the same problem in the future. I didn't decide to make the video until after I had successfully replaced the cable so I started recording at the end of the process and recorded as I put the car back together...then I strung the clips together in the "correct" order. So if the video seems a little goofy keep in mind that I'm working backwards and did my best to put the steps in the right order. Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=a0ORL4DAKio Hope it helps!

Im reviving a dead thread here but I am also having the same issue, however, with my toyota, the attachment clip from the end of the cable to the tranny lever is just a plastic clip (for lack of a better word) its a square shaped piece with a notch cut out the top that the cable fits into and its supposed to hold it along the top. its very strange, not sure how it every really worked,. and totally different than what I see here. I will post a picture tomorrow (its dark here and was dark when the issue happened)
