Australia Help - shifter cable replacement

Hi all,

I just bought an 2002 cooper s privately and the shifter cable snapped.

I kinda knew it was coming because there was a short shifter on it, and I wanted to return it to stock, but just didn't have time.

The mini's currently on stands, with the exhaust hanging and shift box open. The cable was a bit bent, and so was the linkage rod. I've ordered a new shifter cable/shifter shaft, which will take about 2 weeks to come from Germany.

Anyways, I was wondering if anyone has done this themselves and what it involves. My main concern is disconnecting the cable from the gearbox side and connecting the new one. There's not much room there, so I think maybe the airbox and/or wheel needs to come off?

Any help will be appreciated.

edit: also wanted to know if someone has the repair manual and can send me an extract covering that section.

Cheers,
Johnny.

Got the old cable off.

It's just slides and clips onto a bracket, and the end of it is one of those ball joint things.

One more long week before the new cable comes...

All done. Saved myself a few hundred in labor costs.

Stock shifter feels so flimsy compared to the short shifter.
