Shifter Cable Adjustment?

Hello all...just replaced my Neutral Saftey Switch and now I think I need to make an adjustment to my shifter cable. Tried following the instructions below but just dont know enough about the parts to identify the correcct parts:

CAUTION: Under no circumstances should the cable be adjusted in any position other than D (drive) for the C6 transmission (7003) or (D) (overdrive) for the E4OD transmission.

1. From inside the vehicle, place the transmission range selector lever in the DRIVE position (C6) or the OVERDRIVE position (4R70W and E4OD). Hang an improvised three-pound weight (#1) on the transmission range selector lever (#2).
2. Raise vehicle on a hoist and position suitable safety stands under vehicle.
3. Remove the shift cable (#5) from the transmission lever ball stud.
4. Pull down the lock tab on the shift cable body.
5. Position the transmission range selector lever (#2) in the DRIVE position (C6) or the OVERDRIVE position (E4OD). This is three detents from the front-most lever position with the first position counting as one.
6. Connect the cable end fitting to the transmission lever ball stud.
7. Push up on the lock tab to lock the cable in the correctly adjusted position.
8. Remove safety stands and lower vehicle from hoist. Remove the three-pound weight from the transmission range selector lever.
9. After making the adjustment, check for park engagement. Check the transmission range selector lever in all detent positions with the engine (6007) running to make sure correct detent/transmission actions. Readjust if necessary.

My questions are:
Step 3 - Where is the transmission lever ball stud located (if you have a pic that would be great). And how do I go about removing the shift cable from it?

Step 4 - Where is the lock tab located? (again if you have a pic that would help)

Step 5 - Where is the transmission range selector lever located?

Thanks for your help.

I believe I need a new shifter cable. However, I've searched and can't find a replacement shifter cable. Anyone out there know where I can pick one up besides the jy?
