Risk
There is a possibility that the bolt welded to the manual control lever (lower) at the AT side may be cracked, which may result in loosening of the adjust nut and moving of the cable. This can then lead to a different positioning of the shift lever itself from actual A/T shift position. (For instance: Shift lever position is “P”, but actually A/T shift position is “R”). In this case, customer tries to start the engine, but engine cannot start because of “R” position .In a worst-case scenario, the bolt might get broken and then, the control cable might be disconnected from the fixing location, resulting in no operation of A/T shift and inability for driving.
