    Good news. I'll look at the connection on mine in a day or two, to see what can be done.

    I had a look, and the plastic end must be clipped over a ball, it looks like the end unclips from the cable, but the end is not sold separate. I looked for an easy way to remove the end to examine it but was exhausted. Have a good look at how it grips the pin/ball to see if some heat could modify it.

    That helps, thank you for looking. On the transmission end of my cable there is only a hole and I wondered what was supposed to hold the cable to the ball. The end behind the dash has some type of plastic clip. I will try to find a similar plastice piece or something to hold the transmission end to the ball. Otherwise, I may have to get a new cable.

    You could put some epoxy on the ball to make it bigger, after fitting the cable end, or force a piece of plastic hose over it. A new cable from rockauto is $55.

    Thanks, I think the ball would have to be a lot bigger because my bushing is totally gone. I saw some youtube repair videos that used bushings bought on Amazon or Auto parts stores but they are $20-30 bucks and I don't feel confident they would fit/hold. I might just get the new cable and be done with it. I do appreciate your help.

    I have an idea, I have been working on my house water pump, the pipe connections had the leaks sealed with wraps of tire inner tube, common repair by the water company. It lasts a long time, you could hold the cable end onto the lever the same way.
