NOTE: The illustration shows the LHD model; RHD model is similar.

1.Install the shift lever assembly.


2.Connect shift lock solenoid connector (A) and park pin switch/A/T gear position indicator panel light connector (B).

3.With holding the socket holder (A), rotate the socket holder retainer (B) fully counterclockwise, and press in the socket holder lock (C) between the holder and retainer.


4.Align the socket holder (A) with the slot (B) in the socket holder bracket (C), then slide the holder into the bracket.


5.Rotate the socket holder retainer (A) clockwise, and push the socket holder lock (B). Rotate the holder retainer counterclockwise until the retainer stops at the stop (C) of the holder lock to secure the shift cable.


6.Turn the ignition switch ON (II), and verify that the R position indicator comes on.


7.If necessary, push the shift cable (A) until it stops, then release it. Pull the shift cable back one step so that the shift position is in R. Do not hold the shift cable guide (B) to adjust the shift cable.


8.Turn the ignition switch OFF.

9.Place the shift lever in the R position, then insert a 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) pin (A) into the positioning hole (B) on the shift lever bracket, through the positioning hole on the shift lever, and into the positioning hole on the bracket. Use only the 6.0 mm pin with removed-burrs ends.


10.Verify that the shift lever is secured in the R position.

11.Install the shift cable end (A) over the mounting stud (B) by aligning its square hole (C) with the square fitting (D) at the bottom of the stud. Do not install the shift cable by holding the shift cable guide (E).


12.Verify that the shift cable end (A) is properly installed on the mounting stud (B).


13.If improperly installed, align the square fitting with the square hole by rotating the mounting stud.

14.Install and tighten the nut.


15.Remove the 6.0 mm (0.24 in.) pin that was installed to hold the shift lever.

16.Allow the front wheels to rotate freely.

17.Start the engine, and shift the transmission through all gears three times. Check the shift lever operation, A/T gear position indicator operation, and shift cable adjustment.
