Hi folks,my gear selector cable has snapped on my car
i have had the car up in the air and took a picture see picture below.

i have undone the cable from inside the car and was wondering just how hard this job is going to be once i have disconnected the cable from under the car.
Any ideas tips or info will be more than welcome.
I have a ramp to put the car on and get underneath so this will be a big help
thanks.

Hi, where abouts has it snapped, can you tell?
From what I can make out from the picture, as long as you can get to the ends, it should be straight forward, although awkward and fiddly under the car.

Hi it has snapped mid way along the cable i have undone the cable from the gear lever inside the car and will do the underside tomorrow
BMW want £45.00 for the cable which isn't too bad but it also comes with it's
outer sleeve which is a metal type thus makeing it a bit more difficult to feed through:confused
