open the orange clip, have someone center the shifter in the car, and pop the clip back into place

What he said. It actually might feel better than before if it hadn't been adjusted in awhile or ever. BTW, punctuation is your friend

Adjusting the Cables

Here:

4. Push in the orange lock on the back of the cable end
Take it out for a test drive and see how all the gear gates feel.
Adjust if necessary again (likely won't need to).
Sometimes the cable housings come out of the body attachment clips (under the heat shielding in the 'tunnel') and can flop around a bit ... requiring a cable adjustment.
Some early-build SVTs had the MTX-style cable ends (as shown in the Focushacks article).
Newer builds have a cable end where the lock pops out instead of in (as shown in my earlier posted pic).
And, here's his other post with a pic:

Clarification requested: When you pop up the orange shift cable lock, does it need to come all the way out, or just up and lose when recentering shifter in the neutral gate?
Thanks.
