  1. 2002 AVALON - HOW TO REMOVE SHIFT BAR HEAD?

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Mau'u Mai beach was lovely.. it's in mid 80's.. the waves created a fun kiddie ride... I haven't driven the car a lot yet should so I know if there's anything else going on. Yes, it's the fan on passenger side; I guess a blade was brittle & broke off & makes racket. I agree, knocking off $150...
  2. 2002 AVALON - HOW TO REMOVE SHIFT BAR HEAD?

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    (inside car) I put the E-clamp (referred to as bushing).. in gear box - the collar of cable slides on post & clamp adheres collar tightly. I have to drive it today to see how it's working. It was "too simple" to think this solved it entirely..Off to Sunday market to see how it does. Although...

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Thanks for this. I can't imagine that an OEM will snug the collar of the gear arm any tighter than it is with the 3/8" E-clamp.. yet will pass this info along to new owner (when that happens). Ok.. if still slopping gear shifting, will look further at other end as suggested. I LOVE this forum...

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    CONTINUING SAGA OF 2002 Avalon. Friend Peter's wise advice: get the c-clamp & make sure it's tight. That really helps. Before that, I put him through the ringer.. we found where the cable connects to the transmission. We could "see" it.. neither from below nor above could we access it...
  5. 2002 AVALON - HOW TO REMOVE SHIFT BAR HEAD?

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Aloha.. I have a friend here - up under the car - he's seeing a boot type part - cannot access from above or below - which means other parts would need to be removed. Seems I learned enough to know this is beyond my scope of action. My friend, Peter is a car guy but only worked on OLDER...
  6. 2002 AVALON - HOW TO REMOVE SHIFT BAR HEAD?

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Thank you...seems natural that the issue is at one end or the other.. I've watched so many videos & grateful for what I'm learning. My sister says, "dad would be so proud of you".... he was a curious mechanic & back in those days, cars seemed simpler & he would just listen to the engine or...

    I hate to disassemble gear box again..but there's a switch that may need an adjustment that will tighten up my shift bar. How can I remove the leather part of gear?
  9. 2002 Avalon Shift Cable Issue

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    WOW.. CHECK THIS OUT.. while this guy is not working on an Avalon, I bet the switch mechanism is the same. Fast forward to 6:30 when he has the console out.
  10. Hello everyone first timer placing a post:

    Good luck... I had to walk away from my Avalon for awhile - spending way to much time under the dashboards.
  11. 2002 Avalon Shift Cable Issue

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Wed: Aug 28 update: car guy friend..with all the plastic casing removed: the arm/bushing are in tact. I'm wondering if the gear cable needs to be tightened. When I put gear in park .. unless I move with authority, the car rolls backward. The mechanic said.. "you're not pushing it hard...
  12. 2002 Avalon Shift Cable Issue

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Security starting was also an issue. After researching a bit, realized the risk of my car being stolen was less stress than not being able to start it. I asked him to move the rework the receiver to under the dash & can now use a plan Jane key and still have the operational fob. I just...

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    After I posted this, I drove to post office in the Avalon.. it had a power struggle.. that's new. Who was there but my mechanic whose shop is about 1/2 away.. I told him I tried to emulate him but I now had to surrender for lack of knowledge, experience, tools, a lift etc. I told him I had the...

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    What if it's NOT the bushing.. what else do I look for? If this helps.. In PARK, when I release emergency brake, the car rolls.. so it's not holding. I have console torn apart & I was actually HOPING to find the arm off. But not the case... unemployed & trying to be frugal & exploratory...
