Hi XLR fans. I was backing my car out of the drive way and low and behold as I started to shift into Drive, the cable let go. With the car stuck in reverse, I maneuvered it back into the driveway, shut it off and set the parking brake as I had to get to work and had no time to waste. Fearing the worst, I let the car sit till I had more time to investigate. Today I jacked up the rear end and found the cable had disengaged from the transmission shift lever due to deterioration of the inner plastic bushing on the cable end. I remember someone already finding a fix to this if the cable had not broken by just replacing the inner bushing. I went to BushingFix.com today and ordered the repair kits for both ends. Plus a spare set. By the way both kits are on sale currently almost half price. As many have suggested on the blog, recommend you get the two kits and throw them in you glove box to be ready when this happens to you. The transmission end kit can be installed quickly without taking anything apart as long as you can get the rear of the car jacked up. I also ordered a spare shift cable from GM to have on hand when the original breaks. No telling when GM will discontinue the cable like they already have done on the rear wheel bearings. Really glad this whole event didn't happen away from home in the middle of some parking lot as it has for some members.
