Answer 1
If the black plastic clip is broken you will need to replace the DENTENT cable or rig up something... Transmission will not performe properly if left unhooked. I dont know of a repair part but there may be such available. How about one of those old metal rod clips used for years on carbs. Put cable in groove of clip(with orginal clip in place) and squeez clip closed? Just a thought. Use your imagination! Or next step see a repair shop! Not an easy fix to replace the assem. without a lift and proper tools. -
Answer 2
repl the entire cable, hey do have aftermarket ones for your car. -
