Yes, as noted-- the cable gets water and will rust inside-- the only fix that will last, is to replace the cable.

Mines also hard to shift, how hard is it to replace the cable? I figured that was the problem but just never took the time to mess with it.

Can anybody tell me if the cable comes apart and how to do it? Mine is in one piece and I can't get it from behind the steering column

Cable is easy to replace and takes about an hour. Replace the whole cable together and not just a half. Just make sure you hook the cable up with the shifter in same position as indexed on trans. Their is a n for neutral stamped on the trans case and just line the shift shaft up with it
