Beside above, how does a shift cable work?

The shift cable runs up through the firewall and attaches to this lever. The cable runs from the firewall to the transmission gear shift linkage, where it is attached and held securely in place. As the handle is moved, it either pulls or pushes on the cable. In turn, the cable does the same to the transmission linkage.

Where is the shift linkage?

The shift linkage is located in the transmission tunnel of the vehicle and with exception of the shift knob, is accessed from underneath the vehicle. Because the linkage is located above the transmission there is very little space available to access the upper retaining pin.
