ralph whitaker: i did all that you say, the spring is in good shape took it out and put it back it does the same no different than before
Cindy Siam: Thank you for a shift lesson!
BJ: Eric, if the spring is damaged beyond repair, where can you get a replacement. Is there an item # for it? Great video! I got stuck with a repair of $500 and it still isn't working correctly.
Elizabeth Santillan: I spilled coffee on the shifter and it locked do you think it has something to do electrical or its the same as you show on your video???
Justin Grosz: saved my butt big time! thanks a ton man!
Julio Gonzalez: Thanks, man, you are life saver. I fix the problem in 5 min!
Art Baisley: To get the top cover off... once you have pried down the boot and chrome trim ring if you look closely at the base of the knob (you can see it int his video just above the screw hole) you will see a white tab. Pull or pry that tab down to remove. Once that is off the top cover pulls right out. Complete the repair, install the top cover, and reinsert the white clip.
crosschofas: sucks that it's a little different concept with a 07! i hope its just something like this?
Mared Jaffar: Thanks for the video
mememe001: Thank you!! I watched your vid and then fixed mine in less than ten minutes. You're a lifesaver!
Whitetruedat2: Dude, Life saver. Thanks for the video.
The InfoGrillfather: Well, typically you find the spring in the area sometimes floating around. It pops out because of the tiny set screw coming off. So basically your putting it back together. I do not know if they sell the spring if you cannot find it. I has to be a stiff one. I would try something like Harbor Frieght or look on line for a company that sells an assortment of springs cheap. e
eldodiaz: Eric, I'm not sure exactly what you are saying to do. Did you just replace the spring to fix it or what?
clauscaceres: Thank You very much for your video, you are gonna save me $600
LoGruvz: I have a 2004 Nav and I have this problem. The plastic tip is too broken to work with but I have found replacement shifter rods on eBay for 50 bucks. I am buying one as they are all aluminum and won't break. Hope it works.
Chris Howell: Hi Eric, thank you for the video. Using your video I was able to get my navigator to shift out of drive. Unfortunately when I took everything apart the plastic sleeve (or whatever its called) that the spring sits down inside was totally broken. The lower part where the pin goes in still functions so I can get my keys out by pulling up on the button on my shifter. Am I forced to get the whole shifter assembly now that I have no where to put the spring or can the plastic part just be replaced?
Dave Lewis: I was installing an aux input in my 2004 Navigator and the shifter got stuck on park. I came across your video and it totally saved the day. You saved me a tow plus what ever they would have charged me at the dealer. Thank you so much for posting this!
durrans200: Hi Eric, Thanks for this great viodeo, I am from London and I have Lincoln Navigator, had exactly same problem and went to the Mechanic and he asked me £500 (about $800) for part and repair, as he told me whole mechanism needs to be changed, I came home watched this video and bang on, I DID IT MY SELF, without spending a single penny,
Thanks a lot mate, you dont know how much this is helpful for the people having this problem.
You are Gem!
Melissa Burns: Eric, thank you for the video. Our problem is that our shifter is stuck in park and won't move. My husband was able to remove the console underneath the shifter & we now have to push the little white release button (sorry don't know tech. term) at the same time we move the shifter in order to get it to move. Obviously, we want to find a more permanent solution. Do you have any ideas or suggestions. Thanks, Melissa
