Transmission Kickdown Cable Help......

Hey how is it going. I saw some posts about you replacing your TV Cable. I have to do the same with my jeep. I have a few questions about the install.

How hard is it to replace?? Can decent not so great mechanic do it?

When you say snake the new line with the old. How do you do that with that Plastic clip on the end of the line?

How hard is it to install the new line on the transmission?

What I was thinking is maybe you can push the new line down the tube from the engine then to the transmisson.
Is that possible?

Does anyone have any photos of the Linkage on the Tranny?

Im am in need of this Asap as my car is having shifting issues... I dont wanna waste the 200 at the shop. So Im hoping its as easy as you guys say.

I can't imagine it's too hard to do, but before you go replace the TV cable, you should be 100% sure it's not just an adjustment problem.

edit: unfortunately I don't know how to replace it

Ohh I know for sure its the Kick down Cable. I broke the plastic clip off it. Did the Zip Tie thing and now the plastic clip broke so I cant zip tie anymore.
So its now time for a new cable.

Need to replace the entire cable with housing.

TV cable lever is in back connected to the right hand end of the return spring.

That's it.

The inner cable and outer case/housing are replaced as an assembly. You can't just "snake" a new cable into an old housing.

Cheaper to get one from a JY.

So how does one get the new one from the throttle body to the transmission?

I was told you could just snake the new one down the old one. This is why Im posting.
