my thanx to all involved w/descriptive and pictorial posts involving this thread. just did the job w/dorman parts and shifter works great again. po tried to jb weld one of the ears back on the tube where it bolts in the back to the shifter cable ***'y. me thinks it's easier to replace parts than it was to try to do something that foolish. great place to come for info-hope I can give back one day.

Wow! This has really helped out. Went into a store tonight, came back out, started truck, shifted to Drive, and a dang Torx head shouldered screw falls out and hits my right foot. Now can't shift it into Park. Got the steering column surround off, and removed key assembly. Could not see where the heck this screw goes. Guess I will do some more tearing apart. By the pictures, I am thinking it is probably the one of those that helps hold that Spring in. Thanks for the great tutorial/ pictorial.

You don't need to tear ANYTHING apart to install this screw. Read this:

Circled in orange.

Thanks Mark. I did actually get a look back there a little while ago with an LED light and a Mirror. It comes from that bracket at the end that holds the spring behind it. The upper one, underneath the jut out of that bracket. The other screw is in there, and it all still appears snug. Would just this screw simply falling out, suddenly make it not able to shift into Park? Or is it just a symptom of additional issues?

One missing screw will make it so that you can't shift to park.

Well I got that dang screw back in. What a serious pain in the butt!!! Getting too old for twisting around up there like I did. Good news is, as soon as I tightened it down, as well as making sure the other was tight, it started shifting just fine again.
