Title: SHIFTER ASSEMBLY HAVING A DETENT TRACK AND A PLUNGER MOVABLE WITHIN THE DETENT TRACK FOR SELECTING ONE OF A PLURALITY OF GEARS OF A TRANSMISSION FOR A VIHICLE
Abstract:
A shifter assembly includes a detent track and a shift lever for selecting one of a plurality of gears. The shifter assembly includes a support with the detent track coupled to the support and defining a first detent and a second detent. The detent track defines at least one cavity in communication with the first and second detents. The shift lever is movably coupled to the support. The shifter assembly includes a plunger movably mounted to the shift lever between the first and second detents. The shifter assembly includes a retainer movably coupled to the plunger having a distal end. The retainer has a locked position with the distal end spaced from the plunger and disposed in the at least one cavity for preventing plunger movement between the first and second detents and an unlocked position spaced from the locked position allowing plunger movement between the first and second detents.
