SET THE PARKING BRAKE!!!!!!!! then slide under vehc on driver side. There should be a cable hooked to lever on driver side of trans. Pop cable off, then you should be able to move the lever. Once you have it unhooked start vehc and move the lever it will click as you change gear positions. May be smartest to have someone in vehc w/foot on brakes. Once forward is fond....off ya go
