Shift Selector Cable Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Shift Selector Cable all about?

Your gear selector is connected to the transmission through a cable. Automatic transmissions usually have one cable, whereas manual versions generally have two. Shifter cables on either type of car produce the same result. They engage the transmission in the proper gear as indicated by the driver. Manual transmission vehicles come with two shift selector cables because the shifter can be moved vertically or horizontally. The ends mount with a swivel-style connector at either end. If the gearshift selector cable binds or seizes, it is difficult to engage the gear. If the cable breaks, the transmission will not be able to shift at all from its current position.

Keep in mind:

  • Manual transmissions are more likely to have shift selector cable problems due to higher usage than automatic ones.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle battery is disconnected and vehicle lifted and put on jack stands
  • The defective shift selector cable is removed
  • The new shift selector cable is installed
  • The battery is reconnected and the vehicle removed from the jack stands
  • The vehicle is tested and shifter operation is checked

Our recommendation:

Mechanical shift selector cables can be lubricated during any transmission or clutch repairs. If your gearshift is difficult to move, or if the gearshift will not engage any gear, have one of our expert mechanics diagnose and replace the shift selector cables if required.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Shift Selector Cable?

  • Transmission doesn’t engage gear when you shift
  • Shifter needs to be shimmied in order for it to engage the gear
  • Gear indicator needle no longer lines up with the selected gear

How important is this service?

Gearshift selector cables can cause great annoyance if they are not working smoothly, and if broken, your vehicle is rendered useless until repaired. If you notice signs of a shift cable problem, have one of our professional mechanics inspect it as soon as possible.
