Getrag V-6 5 Speed Transmission Replacement Cables $109.99
by Herbert Ragan Date Added: Saturday 15 May, 2010
These are an extraordinary set of cables for the Getrag 5 speed. They are quality built and are the exact lengths needed. I put these on a '86 Fiero GT 5 speed. The car at the time of installation had 272,271 miles on it with the original OEM shift and select cables. The shifter cable had become unwound and frayed, and so shifts were becoming very hard requiring a lot of effort. I decided that since I was going to replace the shifter cable I might as well do both.

I searched around and determined that Rodney's would likely be the best cables to get. Not only are they a very good deal price-wise, but they are also non-adjustable, which you really don't want to place anything adjustable-wise for transmission cables as the settings can become dislodged and then you're having to make adjustments. I was also pleased to see quality heat wrap placed to length and slidable so I could easily get the heat shielding in the correct place after I installed the cables. These seemed like the best way to go - and I was right.

Installation is no different than any other cable job, but if you have never done anything like this before expect to get a bit greasy. You will have to remove most all the pieces of the center console including the skeleton to get to the cables easily. My console skeleton was already damaged, so installation was slightly easier, but on Fieros in better condition you'll have to do more work. It's then just a matter of slipping off retaining clips and removing a few bolts. Then after removing a few pieces on the firewall you simply route the old cables out and route the new ones the same way.

I was amazed at the shifts with this product. Absolutely slick. I went from incredibly hard shifting to it being so smooth that sometimes I was afraid I wasn't in gear. I was grinding gears simply because I was playing with the shifter wondering if it was in gear due to it being so smooth. Quite amazed honestly and it really put the fun back into driving my Fiero.

Shipping was incredibly fast. I placed my order Wednsday morning and got these on Friday. Installation then was only a couple of hours.

Overall very pleased and would recommend this product for anyone needing new shift and select cables.
