The part that I am offering is just the bushing, not the cable.
This is an improved automatic transmission shifter bushing for the shift selector cable. This bushing connects to the transmission selector pull on several GM vehicles, including Chevy Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender, Saab9-7xand many others (about 97different vehiclesaccording to compatibility list).
Part numbers for the cable (where the bushing is installed), from GM and AC Delco are the following:15785087 15079394 1510141 15101412.
Thislittle bushing is the culprit to more than frecuenttrouble on the road. Suddenlythe worn out shifter bushing, located at the transmission end, gives out after years of good service under extreme conditionsof heat and cold, water, salt and oilexposure, the selector cable then disconnects from the pull ball and you get stuck in gear, unable even to shift back to park andbeing unable to removethe key from the ignition. Fixingthat temporarilyin the middle of the road, then limp back home is not fun, let me tell you.
There are several solutions of course: You could take your car to the shop and get the complete cable replaced (100 to 200 dollars plus towing fees); buy a new cable and do it yourself (80 dollars); you could instead get really involved, do a chop job and go ahead modifying the selector pull, grinding its ball off, drill a holewere the ball was,and install a metallic new pin, hoping you didn't mess it upor; install a new and improved bushing that will last for years and is an economical and stock alternative. I have one of this bushings in my vehicle's glove compartment and another one installed at the end of my shifter cable, no issues.
To install this bushing is not even necessary to remove the cable from its location. It is just amatter of removingall the bitsof the old split up plastic bushing and install the new one in to the cable's end eyelet, then insert the eyelet into the selector pull, applya drop of RTV silicon on top of selector'spull ballif desired and that's it.
If your year and model is not on the list, then Iam not sure it will fit you application. If the part number for the cable is the same then it should, unfortunately my listing is not complete and even when I knowthe bushing will fit manyother vehicles I'm not sure which ones are those. You could buy it and check, if it does not fit just send it back for a refund. If you have remnants of the old bushing you could give me some measurements to compare. Tell me what you want meto do. I will help you any reasonable way I can.
New bushing is supple andflexible since is new. Old ones are fried-up and hardened by temperature exposure.
This are the aproximate measurements for the bushing and shifter cable's eyelet: eyelet's innermost diameter (narrow part is .423 of an inch or 10.75 mm, eyelet's outermost diameter (wides grooved part that acommodates bushing's outer lips measures .517 of an inch or 13.15 mm, bushing's outermost and wider sides (two lips outer faces) measure .517 of an inch or 13.15 mm and allocate into the eyelet's grooves. Bushing's narrowest part or middle holes' diameter where the inner lip or membrane is located .220 of an inch or 5.60. Bushing's inner diameter at the widest and both faces hole measures .295 of an inch or 7.49 mm .330 of an inch. I assume that ball pull's diameter needs to be a minimum of about .3150 or 8.00 mm to .393 or 10 mm.
Attention: when inserting bushing be sure that once installed into the plastic eyelet it needs to be carefully push against the ball pull, making sure the ball passes the bushing inner membrane lip, which just measures about .039 of an inch or 1.00 mm. Brute force and stubborness will destroy the bushing or the cable's eyelet. Patience and time will yield the right results. Some people in the past were not careful and either destroyed the bushing or claimed bushing's inner hole was to big for the ball pull. In reality the bushing was okay, but it was not installed all the way, got teared-upand later on it disconnected from the ball pull. The ball pull needs to be fully inserted into the bushing and jump the center lip without damaging it, and that is true also if you install a new bushing or a brand new cable with bushing included.
