I read a review from someone else. I know where his installation went wrong. He assumed the plastic piece was the locking nut it is nothing more than a guide. You have to continue to press the cable into the mount for the metal locking bracket.

These are absolute trash. I wouldn't wish them upon anyone. I had to return the first pair because they wouldn't secure to the shifter. The second pair failed after 21 miles and I had to drive home in first gear.

These are a tedious task and no fun to do. I would avoid these cables even if you're stuck on the side of the road you're better off fashioning new ones from shoelaces than using this garbage.

I've attached a picture of the failure from the second time as well so that you can see that they're made from cheap parts and fail right away.

If rating negative star or a zero was possible it would get that score.

ATP #16833 Cables Work Great In My Car

    Comments about ATP Manual Trans Shift Cable:

    Good Price. I installed these cables about 2 months ago on my 2000 Saturn SL. There have been no disappointments with these cables. The hardest part of installation was getting old cables out of the firewall of vehicle. First,I put the car on jack stands. Then, I used a hydralic jack with a short steel rod to put the rubber plug of old cables up through floor into vehicle. The job took me about 3 hours. My daughter now needs a new set of cables in her 1999 Saturn SC so here I go again.

      These were easy to install and I haven't had any problems with them. Do not go to a dealer to have your cable replaced it will be upwards of $400+. I bought these cables for around $50 and it took me about an 1/2 hour to replace. Installed on a 99 Saturn SC2 Manual Transmission. Thank You Advance Auto Parts!

          Comments about ATP Manual Trans Shift Cable:

          This product provided the fix needed. It was priced right and fit the vehicle. The most difficult part of the installation was fishing the cable back into the car. The adapter allowed for installation onto the shift knob by popping out the center ring. After cleaning up the area for attachment at the transmission, the attachment was relatively easy.
          I would recommend this part as an effective replacement for an SL-1 Saturn manual trasmission cable. This was a two and one half hour job.

            Comments about ATP Manual Trans Shift Cable:

            The cable was a decent replacement for the OEM part. It was easy to install for use in everyday driving.
            The passage from the passenger to the engine compartment needed to be enlarged in order to get this part into the engine compartment. Insulation had to be trimmed so the cable could be fished to the manual transmission connection point.
            There is one major concern with this part. The first cable purchased broke after 4-5 months of service. It appears that the cable reduces in thickness to 50% of the normal diameter at the end where it connects to the shift assembly. Since this is a higher tension and stress area, I would think that any imperfection in the metal there would contibute to breaking. I hope the replacement part I got will last longer than the first one.

                A:

                With reference to your inquiry on the ATP Manual Transmission Shift Cable - Part No. 16833 the possible causes for a no shift gear malfunction are: shifter cables might have snapped (more specifically the connectors at the end of the cables) or the little clip that connects the clutch cable to the shifter box might had fallen off. The cables attach near the back of the trans axle. You may be able to see them under the brake lines.
