Dizzy 1999 Saturn SL2 - Stuck in 1st gear

folks,

I am new to playing with cars, I am trying to save some money in this rotten economy

Yesterday, at a traffic light my car's gear shifter broke. The car is in 1st gear and i cannot be geared to any other position.

It feels like some cable or something is broken, because the shifter is literally "dangling". The shifter "freely" moves up and down but does not seem to move left and right.

Can someone provide advice on how to fix this? Does someone have an electronic copy of the Haynes manual for the 1999 SL2?

Thanks a lot!

Sounds like the shifter bushing.

On ebay you can buy a CNC machined one.

Someone will post the link.

I'll be sitting at my desk
With a gun in my hand, wearing a bulletproof vest singing
"My, my, my, how the time does fly, when you know you're going to die
By the end of the night."

Select search on teh menu above and then advanced search. Serach for shift bushing or shifter bushing and limit the search to S-Series Tech and How-To Library. You will get it all that way.
Also check this guys other items.
