call the dealer ship and ask how many hours labor they charge for the job.

Nothing in Snap-on Shopkey for shift cable, but I'd say 2 hours would be reasonable.

Curious why/how it broke? My '06 Cummins has always been stiff to come out of park, bought it with 45,000km on it. I had the dealer I bought it from look at it and adjust the interlock solenoid but no difference. I looked at it myself and it seems like the solenoid is weak, not releasing fully all the times. Chrylser says it's not sold seperately from the cable, of course. [16]

the whole cable n everything is only 86 bux. it was actually a rock got lodged inbehind the linkage at the tranny. musta been sittin up top from sylvester and just fell down perfect when we went to turn around in the neighbours riveway. so with fukin with the shifter the cable broke. had to go underneath and find neutral to start it, then put it into gear while the bro inlaw held the brake. talk about tryin to remember if ya pissed someone off recently haha.
