I just took off the shift linkage on my white car for the first time. The PO had broke the head off of one of the bolts, and since it was tight, they just left it. So I had to drill it out. That sucked.

Now I have a short in the reverse light that keeps blowing fuses. Set it on fire, YES.
I saved the day with a bolt from Home Depot... finished the coolant bleeding and car seems to be driving great! I have to tell you though... got stranded for ten minutes when the shift lever bolt came apart from the kit.. I'm gonna take the blame on this though. i tightened it up more than before and the shifting is better than I ever dreamed, even the first time. Maybe I was scared of over-tightening idk. But I should have noticed the shifting was getting sloppy.

Also yeah, I bought an extractor kit for $8 but went with my gut and it turned out easily with jeweler's pliers.
