You say 3 bushings?

I have the diagram in front of me from Ford and it only shows 2 bushings.

I bought the 2 bushings and the shifter tube which is very funny looking. It is metal, and looks pretty heavy. I wouldnt think this thing would wear out that much but quess Im wrong lol.

Any tips before I tear into this.

Thanks, Cody

Just remember how you took it apart. It's not too bad to do.

Just did this to mine because of the same thing. This was a new shifter tube also, so check those torx bolts, it may be as easy as that. My old one was snapped though which is why I needed a new one so look for cracks in the tube where it mounts at those torx bolts.

Re: Wont Start When in Park

How do you pop the key switch out so I can get the top side of the column off?

Put the key in and on the bottom side of the cylinder there is a round pin you push in while turning the key and pulling out.

Re: Wont Start When in Park

Thanks I got it. Ok well the two bolts in the back were very lose and the front bushing wasnt even there. I cant figure out how to get to the back clamp off that holds the other bushing. The bolts are on top and no room???
