Product Reviews
Vehicle Fit

This steering column shift linkage coupler connects the shift lever to the shift linkage inside the steering column. Over time these can wear out causing excessive play in your shifting linkage to the point your vehicle would not be able to shift out of gear.

It used to be that you would have to replace the complete steering column because the dealer does not sell this piece separately. But now you have a cost saving alternative!!

This steering column shift linkage coupler features:

  • Fits steering columns that have Tilt Steering, column shift, & Automatic Transmission only
  • Replaces steering column dealer part numbers: 5L2Z 3C529-A, 5L2Z3C529A, 1L2Z 3C529 JA
    , 1L2Z3C529JA, 3L2Z 3C529 BA, 3L2Z3C529BA, 4L2Z 3C529 DA, 4L2Z3C529DA
  • Direct replacement
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Replace just the failed part, not the complete column

How do you replace this part?

pop out the pin on the lever , then hammer out the clip on rear end with a flat end screw driver, work around the clip until it pops out. then tap rear end with hammer to loosen old coupler out. Install the same way you remove old one. but first remove covers on top and bottom to get to coupler .just take time and inspect what you are going take apart .. Its very simple and I thought it was going to be hard but it is not, sorry I do not have photos to give. you will need snap ring pliers to install the ring at the end

I did not personally replace this part, I had a mechanic do it. It was relatively easy for him to do, from what he told me. He had to rake the steering panel off and replace the piece inside there.

Sorry but we do not have any installation details on this part at this time. Maybe a Chilton or Haynes repair manual will be of assistance?
