Below are some pictures that have made this process so perplexing. The first is how the cable looks disengaged, the second one is engaged. In the first picture it looks like the cable should pass through the small slot and the metal tube would sit below in the larger opening. But in the second picture the metal tube sits on top of the opening. The transmission is disengaged now. It looks very untrustworthy and if it weren’t for the forum verifying this is correct, I wouldn’t have believed it.
