1995 SC2
Attention Transmission shift cable help!

I'm currently in the process of taking out the motor of my 1995 SC2 manual.
I need advice on how to remove the shift cables from the trans housing.
The linkage is disconnected but I can't get the part where the housing wraps around further down the line.
Any help is apreciated,
Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

AS I recall, there is a plastic part with ears near the metal part of the transmission holding the cable. You need to squeeze the ears and turn the plastic part to the opening in the metal housing allowing the cables to get out. I do not recall if the ears are on the right or left of the metal housing. When you see it out, you realize how it works however it is a "stumper" until then.

Manual trans cables are held to the trans by u shaped clips that fit over the cable and against the tab that the cables go through. Lift/pry the clips up to get them off of the cables.

If it is the clips that hold the cables to the shifter linkage then lift the center tab on the clip up enough to clear the post and slide the clip off of the linkage post.

A 'stumper' indeed. I looked at the car and even have the motor raised up so I can see them semi-clearly. All of the parts in there are metal. There is no plastic any where I can see. Nothing resembling earred-tabs. Maybe I'm just too tired after working on it all day

There are no eared tabs to release the cables on the manual trans. They are all held in with metal clips.

Drew... ssicarman is correct. They are metal clips that need to be pried up.

I was thinking about the auto trans. Thanks for the follow-up ssicarman..

Push it back then up. After the first time, you dont even need to see them to take them out.

Thanks for all the help guys! I got them off.
The first was easy and came right out but the lower one took a good 30 minutes. lol You'd figure in 8 and a half hours of work, three guys could get a motor out,

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
