      An easier way than what?

      Here's the quick run down:

      Jack up car
      Loosen exhaust at cat
      Remove heat shield
      Remove lower access panel to shift box
      Remove cotter pin on shift cable
      Disconnect cable from tranny
      Remove C-clip from cable guides
      Remove cable
      Drink

      It's not too difficult.

      not difficult.....just a PITA.

      Good luck.....the list above sums it up. No other way to do it.

      Depends on how eaily you can take your exhaust off. Mine is all stainless with stainless bolts, when I did it I think it took me Maybe 4-5 hours with switching the shifter and cables. But I spread it out over 2 days since its not my daily.
