Generally, the whole cable needs to be replaced. If Ford has stopped making them, you can try to do a search on PartsVoice.com to see if someone still has a new cable lying on the shelf somewhere at a dealership. The next option is to find a good quality wrecking yard that can do a nationwide search to find one.
