- Apply parking and service brakes securely.
- Place selector lever in R range.
- Set ignition key to the START position.
- Slowly move the selector lever upward until it clicks into the notch of the P range. If the starter motor operates when the lever clicks into place, then P position is correct.
- Next, slowly move the selector lever to N; if the starter operates in this gear, then N is also correct.
- Also check to see that the vehicle does not move and the lever does not stop in between gears. If all of the above checks out, the cable is correctly adjusted.
- Adjust the adjusting nuts where the cable is connected to the manual lever at the inhibitor switch to take up any slack in the control cable.
- Recheck operation of the selector lever and inhibitor switch.
- Place the shift lever in the N position.
- Open the hood. On top of the transaxle the control cable connects with a lever. In the lever is a hole which should index with a hole in the top of the transaxle case when the linkage is in the neutral position. If not, unlock and turn the adjusting nut on the linkage until alignment is achieved. Lock the adjusting nut.
- Check that the car will start only in the N and P positions.
- With the shift lever in the N position, remove the shift handle from the lever.
- Measure the distance between the threaded sleeve and the top of the shift lever. The distance should be 17.2-17.9mm. If not, turn the sleeve as necessary.
- Install the shift handle with the button on the driver's side.
- Open the hood.
- On top of the transaxle the control cable connects to a lever. Where the control cable connects to the lever there are two locknuts.
- To adjust the control cable, eliminate all the slack from the cable by tightening the two locknuts.
- After the adjustment, from inside the vehicle operate the shifter lever to make sure everything works smoothly.
- Cheek that the car will start only in the N and P positions.
- Drive the vehicle and make sure that all gears shift properly.
