cable for 3 speed manual trans problem
#1
Hi all,
My speedo cable was yanked out of the fitting and the fitting is still inside the case as seen in the pics 
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix or is this a job for a transmission shop?[Image: A349-D324-9421-4-D05-A0-C6-A946685-F467-A.jpg]

Just take the bolt out of the "U" shaped clamp, clean it off, and pull the remnants of the old cable housing/fitting out of the transmission, get a new cable assembly and you'll be good to go.

Thanks don
Any suggestions on how to pull the part out? It’s in tightly so I’m wondering if I can pry it out or maybe thread a bolt into it and they pulling it out that way. I’m concerned about damaging the trans case

Thanks again

Use a sheet metal screw or lag bolt threaded into the center of the fitting. You can't damage the case like that.
