My wife and I were heading to Omaha on Tues for a funeral so early Tuesday morning I jacked it up and crawled under there to look at it.
Someone rigged up a couple of curved pieces of metal that were screwed underneath and were barely holding the shifter up. I mean that was the ONLY thing holding the shifter up. What happened is they got loose and the pieces of metal moved and the shifter dropped.
I just reinstalled them with some self tapping screws and it worked fine the whole way to Omaha and back (3 hr drive. )
I want to fix it right though.
The Hanes manual has no real clear info on how the factory setup holds up the shifter.
When I get the free time (I get free time?) I'm going to go to the junkyard and see how those are setup there. I figure worse case scenario I need a new shifter.
When I get some daylight I'll take a picture of the current setup.
I'm honestly surprised that it worked at all, but I've been driving it for 4 months like that.
