Default 07 Automatic Hard Shift

On my 07 PT Cruiser automatic base model last night it was hard to shift and now of course this morning something broke and I am stuck in reverse. I am assuming it is the shifter cable that broke. I haven't taken it apart yet.

Is this something a person can do on their own? Does someone have a link to a good video. I looked on youtube but I don't see one for exactly how to do this procedure.

It looks kinda intimidating to be honest. Maybe I am wrong.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Something for sure broke.

If it's just the bushing on the trans under the hood, here's an easy to see and follow video. I can't find one for under the console except for the stick shift. Strange!

Do you know where this is located and how to get to it?

That cable is connected to the transmission on top of the transmission. It's under the battery and battery tray. You'll have to remove them to get to it, IIRC. I don't have a PT repair manual anymore. I let it go with the car when I sold it. Didn't mean to, but it was in the hatch and I forgot to retrieve it.
