Re: 2000 ford expedition offset shift indicator

bbah111,

Here is what I found to do on another ford forum about a year ago.

Look under the steering column next to where it meets the dash, through a gap you'll be able to see a small wire cable connected to a white plastic wheel/clip looking piece. This is an adjuster for the shift indicator. The plastic clip is what usually breaks in half, releasing tension on the cable.

I fixed mine on a 1999 Expedition by pulling the two halves of the clip together as I lined up the indicator needle on the dash to the correct gear.
Then, I fastened the two together with a small strip of metal bent over and around to hold the two pieces. Other devices may work as well, try a lock washer or a strong paper clip. Mine has held together perfectly for over a year. Good Luck.
