99 Durango transmission linkage adjustment
There has always been some slop in the linkage. I just finished changing the transmission fluid, filter, adjusted the bands and replaced the pressure sensor etc. I dropped the valve body to see what condition the bands were in so I had to disconnect the linkage at the transmission in order to do so. I can shift the transmission fine manually. For whatever reason the linage seems to be looser now that I have everything back together. I can get it into park (barely) via the column shifter so I really think it is just a matter of adjusting the linkage. Without knowing how to access the adjustment I can't tell if there is room for adjustment. It appears to me that the adjustment is done after the cable leaves the firewall as there is a large round plastic fitting there - Maybe I am losing my mind but I can't figure out how to open the fitting - I don't want to force anything which may require me to replace the entire linkage/cable.
