by catching i meant that there was strong resistance on the end when pulling out a little further than as pictured in no. a)
yes, i felt a spring tension and when i released the cable from that far it was gently springing into the rubber shielding. so no way about fishing the whole cable out.
on the other hand when i was pulling gently at first time i pulled a little like 1/4'' and noticed cable is so loose that it stays in that position (check pictures with a finger test).
John, i don't get what you mean in your sentence in bold. which tube you mean ? the thing i named "rubber shielding" sitting around the cable itself ?
then by bending you mean like what exactly ? how do i know how that tube is supposed to look like in a new car ?
before it got it that loose which was when reversing the mod explained in above DIY, i heard a single metallic clunk coming from transmission end of kick down cable. i thought i got it broken, but fortunately it's still hooked as it is "catching" at some point.
what you say makes a lot of sense now.
so do i have to replace that cable or simply moving something on the other end will fix the one i got ? either case involves opening the valve body, correct ?
now can someone explain to me please, why trained ATRA technicians have not mentioned such possibility ?
