Heads up on this project. Just finished replacing an auto shift cable for a 2003 mazda protege. The entire dashboard, console, steering column and heater box must be removed. Took 8 hours, pays 6. I thought Taurus heater cores were bad. Glad there are easy things like Rancheros to fix. I'll make a cardboard beek and go pick s*** with the chickens before I do another one of them.
