Bought a 96 ranger xlt, 4x4 auto, 120k miles yesterday for my son. His first vehicle. The seller pointed out when shifting it does not indicate the correct position and have found threads describing how to adust that. The other problem is the shifter floats from R to 2. It does not lock into each position. I can find each gear and does drive nice. I have the column covers off and I am at the point of removing the entire column. What I can't figure out is where to make the seperation from column to the shaft going thru the fire wall. There is a swival joint and a connection with what looks like to 2 pins. If it is the swival joint how does it come apart? This is the first time my son has worked with me on a vehicle and things are going good until now.
Thanks in advance.
