Default Still have to secure reverse lockout on short shifters? (kartboy ss)

I know this is a "look on your car and find out" kind of question, but getting under the car isnt real easy for me and my situation. But i searched around and most of the threads/answers are pretty dated, and i'm not sure if they apply anymore or not. When i installed my short shifter yesterday i didnt seem to see where the reverse lockout cable would be making contact with the driveline. Maybe its been "fixed" on kartboys end? The line looks to be the same as it was before i swapped out the shifter. Is the only way i can tell is to drive for a little bit and see if there is some wear on the cable itself? Need some pro tips here, thanks!

Yes you will need to do that with our shifter along with just about every other aftermarket shifter out there. Its an easy fix if you can at least get under the car. You will want to use the second zip tie and secure the reverse lockout cable to the shifter stay about mid way.

Good to know, i will see what i can do to get it secured. I think i was looking in the wrong area (closer to the front where you have to pin the lockout thingy). Hopefully the 24 miles that will be on the cable before i get to look at it wont do too much damage...

Tom,

Bringing this back from the dead but can you do this without completely removing the heat shield? I would prefer to do this with the front on ramps rather than jacking up all four corners and getting under. I'm a noob to working on Subarus and right now I'm not clear on access to get that zip tie in to take up the cable slack.

you should be able to. I can do it when the heat shields are still on the car. It all depends on how big your meat hooks are. Wear gloves. That stupid shield is sharp.
