    I always always put my manual in 1st when I park.

    funny thing, my e-brake kind of sucks if I am facing downhill the e-brake is pretty much useless but if I am facing uphill it feels strong and tight. Still cant figure out how to adjust that thing....

    Always use the parking brake !!! I can't believe you guys that don't. Park the car and set the parking brake while you have your foot on the regular brakes, shift into park (or 1st gear for clutches) and release the main brakes. There is no other recommended way.

    Tunix, the proceedure for adjusting the parking brake is in the owners book. You push the parking brake down and release it three times and it adjusts. If its way easy now, the pedal will stop sooner each time. You have to park the car someway and whatever first. Look in the book.

    If it won't adjust, its a simple shoe and drum in the rear. Change the shoes.

    I meant to reply directly to the person who said they just changed the bushing but thank you for replying. Any advice on removing the linkage from the transmission, I removed the bolt but the linkage is really stuck on there.

    I have the same problem. Only the bad bushing is where the shifter connects to the rod... and it's RIVITED! So there's no way of replacing it. For the sake of a 50 cent rubber bushing It looks like I'll have to replace the entire shifter unit. P&L over $500.00 for a 50 cent bushing. Any one want to buy a Cadillac CTS with 35,000 miles on it?

    Hi, my 2005 STS is making this same metal clinking noise when I move the shifter from Park through to Drive, and someone wrote that it was easy to repair...to the person that wrote about the location and type of wrenches it requires - my question is: how easy is it to reach the parts that need to be replaced?

    Re: Shifter Bushing(For those of you who are clueless like I was)

    I have known my linkage has been in need of replacement for a while now, but have left it go. However I was wondering If the linkage being outta whack could make the neutral safety relay switch malfunction causing no starts. At first I would have to come out and shift from P to 2 and back to P, now I have had to open up the shifter boot and #3 to mess with #6 and the visible linage of #8. Is this as simple as replacing the NSRS or does it even have a Neutral Safety Relay Switch?

    Is this something I could handle myself without any special tools? Does Replacing the linkage require lowering of the transmission? Removing the center console completely?

    Re: Shifter Bushing(For those of you who are clueless like I was)

    On a 2004 CTS, Right after I replaced item #13 above's bushing, My bushing on item #8 went bad. Is there a aftermarket bushing that I can install. The part for item #8 above is around $300.00 (part only).

    Any help in this would br greatly appreciated..

    you guys must live in Jesup, Ga.! The dealer here told me the same story. They said that I have to buy the entire shifter and it cost 300+. They are keeping it overnight exhausting all avenues trying to find the bushing that I need without buying the entire shifter. This is the kicker. They have already repaired this bushing one time about 1.5 years ago. I told the service guy that and he said that they must have discontinued the part that I was referring to!!!
