English term or phrase: range select cable
ich übersetze gerade einen englischen Text ins Deutsche. Darin steht: "Disconnect the range select cable from the range select lever". Ich gehe davon aus, dass damit die selector cable und selector lever gemeint sind, also Wählhebelkabel und Wählhebel. Aber was hat das mit dem range auf sich? Damit komme ich nicht ganz klar. Es wäre nett, wenn ihr mir damit aushelfen könntet.
Herzlichen Dank.

Es müsste sich um den Schaltzug eines Getriebes handeln, wahrscheinlich Automatikgetriebe. Hier spricht man auch von ranges.

See item 4
Position the transmission range select lever to PARK (P).
