Your shifter linkage apart in the center. You will need to get under the car to see this.

You will see 2 cables coming from your tranny going to your firewall from under the car. And then you will see 4 pieces of plastic connections. One of them has come off. And you simple twist them back together. Yes sad, they are plastic.

Many in the past have twisted these pieces back together and then ziptied them for security.

I done that a couple of times. Works fine. Sure you get a tad bit of play as oppose to getting new cables, but your wallet would be happy and you will too.

I'll see if I can find the photos and how-to of what I am talking about ... someone did a how-to ages ago.
