At first, I thought the cost for a bushing was high considering the size of the part. But there is no alternative replacement part available that I'm aware of, and once I got familiar with the effort to replace the $70 cable, I realized that this was the most cost-effective solution. The bushing is constructed of a more resilient material than the original, so I'm confident it will last the remaining life of the vehicle. I replaced the bushing in place while the Jeep was parked in the driveway. A jack stand would interfere with the workspace and I don't have ramps, so it required a little flexibility and patience. The OEM bushing is cheap rubber so it removed easily with an angle pick. I used a small file and some sandpaper to remove rust on the connector pin. I then used needle-nosed pliers to squeeze and position the replacement bushing on the cable connector. I used a flat screwdriver as recommended to rotate the bushing, and the shaft of a Philips screwdriver to locate and center the bushing. The tool provided is not long enough to be of any help with this process. Also, the connector linkage of the cable will not rotate as installed. A little light grease on the pin helped the bushing snap into place perfectly with the assistance of the pliers for pressure. It is very secure and will not be coming off.
Maybe I've provided more of a review than necessary, but hopefully this will help the next person who needs to do this job. Be forewarned, you'll be working around the driveshaft and some other parts. You'll need to be flexible and patient!
Worked great!! Fit perfectly. Only tip I would give is to put the bushing in scalding hot water and let it soften for a few min and then it goes right it!
Bought my son a used 2005 Jeep Liberty Sport with the 42RLE Automatic Transmission. Trans cable kept popping off. Dealer quoted me $360.00 to replace the whole cable. I asked about replacing the bushing and they said no bushing exists to replace. HA! I bought this and in literally 15 -20 minutes had it installed. It was harder to get the old bushing out than it was to get the new one in. Now...depending on how it performs over time I may have to come back and update my review, but unless it fails, THIS IS A NO-BRAINER. I called the dealership to tell them they were full of it...funny I have not received a return call yet...
