The GC1Kit™ fits at the transmission end of your vehicle's shift cable. This end will be located outside the vehicle either in the engine bay or under the driver's side front tire depending on the application. This is ONLY for automatic transmissions. If you need a bushing to fit at the end of the cable nearest to the shifter (inside the vehicle) please consult our Make/ Model Guide.

- Place the shift lever and transmission lever in Park. Remove the cable end from the cable by using a small screwdriver to remove the clip entirely, and then sliding the cable end off the cable. There may be a spring contained in the cable end, be sure to save it along with the clip.
- Using a 3/8” drill bit, carefully drill the center of the cable end opening to enlarge the hole. This is easier done from the circular end, as shown in fig. A.
- Check to see that all of the necessary material was removed and test fit the bushing. Use a file or other tool to remove material from the cable end as necessary. Repeat until the bushing fits in the cable end so that the thin side is about flush with the cable end (for some cable ends, it may be normal for the top of the bushing not to sit all the way into the cable end). It’s better to remove smaller amounts of material than to remove too much.
- Reinstall the cable end and spring onto the cable and reinstall the clip halfway, so that the cable end slides freely along the notched length of the cable but does not come off.
- Double check that both the transmission lever and shift lever are in Park. Install the bushing into the cable end and press the bushing onto the transmission lever pin. Finish installing the clip into place, so it’s fully engaged and the cable end and cable do not slide.
- With the key on and engine off, shift back and forth from Park to 1 several times, checking that the PRNDL indicator lines up with the shifter position and that the shifter functions correctly.
