Why do you even care? Do you have small children? That'* the sole purpose of that function. Small kids can't reach the brake pedal.

We've all seen the pics. He is small children...

Having that feature be broken would make me a little nervous

It'* a required bit of safety. I would fix it, if it were my car.

puts my whole car at an issue with drunk passengers, could be parked on a hill, and one of them could throw it in gear even though no brake is pressed... they would start rollling backwards, notice they are rolling, throw it back in park, break the parking pin, car would continue to roll, hit another car, totaling out both... and then id get charged with open bottle or something dumb

anyways, bill asked me in a PM to descibe how this worked, so i went and checked:

when you press the shift ****, that little lever moves back 1/2"

with the cable connected and the brake off, it would not let the cable move, therefore not letting the button go in

witth the cable connected and the brake on, it would let the cable move and therefore let the button go in

You know Haro, looking at that button on the brake part makes me think of a quick locking device they sometimes use in cabinetmaking. Maybe, while looking for a piece similar to what gxprules suggested, also look for the reciever piece for a cabinet connector. I'll try and see if I can find a pic.

BTW, I would look in an Ace Hardware or similar place that has a good choice of fasteners.

Lash..you mean like the cam on the premade furniture where the pin goes in and you turn it to hold.?

I feel that the cable swap is the best solution here and probably the most cost effective.

Yeah something like that! There is also a slotted version that looked a lot like the piece broken on his cable.

I would agree that a cable swap would be the correct way to fix it, IF it isn't too involved.

The cam actuated fastener used for premade furniture would work,...but I have never seen one wide enuff to fit over that pin.

Go buy that Terminal at Home Depot for $1.49 and move on with your life...........how could it not work?
