Is the outer cable at the base of the shifter the one that has come unhooked if so there is no need to replace the shifter cables. Let me know.

If it is where I said it is they sell a repair kit on eBay to Repair the cable end. On eBay just type in the search box Saturn shifter cables and it will come up. You could return the cables and save some money that way especially if you bought them from a dealer. To fix it in the mean time you could zip tie the cable in place with some good quality zip ties.I have replaced alot of cables and there no fun at all trust me especially without a lift and not have ever replacing them before. If it's just the outter cable end on the outside edge at the base of the shifter then it's repairable and if you get the metal repair kit it will be stronger then a new cable end even. Just trying to save you some money and misery of replacing the cables. Iam unemployed myself so I know how tight money can get.

Ok I was just trying to save you some money and headache I would just fix the cable if it was my car.I looked on my mitchel on demand they don't have directions on how to replace the cables so I will have to just type you the directions. Are you ok without directions on taking out the center console or do you need those too?
