Transmission linkage broken?
  • Morning Cubesters,

    After months of having to engage "Neutral" to start rather than "Park" finally the auto transmission linkage has broken on my 2003 Gen 2

    Luckily, AA managed to get me home by connecting it with cable tie and wire.

    I'd like to track down the part but not sure what it's called? I thought the AA guy called it an "actuator"?

    If anyone knows or could direct me to an exploded diagram (with part numbers), that would be marvellous!

    Many thanks in advance
  • morning can you put up pic of bit pls so I can do some homework
  • Yes, thanks Toaster. Find attached.

    I've managed to remove the half that bolts to the transmission (round black plastic bit in photo).

    There's a pic from the bottom (with AA wire attached)

    And a pic of the rod half from top.

    Not sure how to get the rod half out of the bracket that bolts onto the block. There's absolutely no room to manoeuvre. I can barely get my fingers in. Probably have to remove grill, rad etc

  • Wow! Thanks Toaster. That's exactly what I needed. I came across those jen 2 cubes being broken so will contact today. BTW it's the gearbox end I need to replace rather than the column end. Although judging by the drawing it comes as one piece?image
