Save yourself some trouble and buy it... rather than trying to save the old one. Its $7-11 depending on where u buy.

Use a 1/2 inch socket to spread the 'fingers' evenly. This will save you from having to buy a new one. No problems with mine. I also would suggest doing the same socket trick when reinstalling the clip.

Great tip, thanks Steeda.

Don't get me wrong, having the part number archived is awesome. I could have just gotten lucky, and would have been bitching trying to find another one.

I tried the zip-ties, but shifting was WAAAAAAAAAAAY more difficult than it should have been. and I did try the 1/2" socket.... it was too much a PITA and ended up breaking anyway.



Now... any one know how to get that little pin in to hold the reverse lockout piece? I've tried everything (although I kinda like not having it.... but it looks bad.

leave the reverse lockout off!! Reverse lockout=death trap.

I used a wire clip and then tied wire around the open end to ensure it won't move. Metal beats plastic any day.

Focus-Central sells something for the shifter base. Is this what your talking about? I know its made of metal.

Shifter Base

ANyone have the ford part # for this. FC will probably rape us more than ford would.
