go to the junkyard/wreckers and buy a replacement shifter and cable.

is this a fairly simple procedure? how common is this for the automatic with autostick to do this?

I believe there was a recall for this, the interlock shift cable. You must be pretty strong because I dont think that the shift knob and the whole metal bar breaks off it was just the cable making it hard to shift on slopes

if you broke the shifter out of the car, they probably wont repair it under warrenty, like i said, maybe go to the junkyard or go thru the buy-sell-trade section. maybe someone will have what you need.

The recall won't cover that. The recall is for the key-shift interlock. What happens is if you pull hard enough the shifter will come out of park without the key being in.

What exactly broke? The shifter itself? or the end on the cable?

As long as the cable end is still intact, theres no reason to replace it. Just should need to replace the shifter (or whatever part it is that you snaped/broke.

Until the next dhifter is broken. He needs to fix the problem first.

The shifter itself broke right at the point where it contacts the base. Getting a new shifter will only bandaid the problem. what causes it to be so hard to get out of park. Does the release button go bad not letting it to disengage?
