Thank you so much for this! You've saved my night. I would not have thought to look under the car, or known what I was looking at if I did. Now I can see my daughter's play instead of calling a tow truck and wondering how we were getting home (this happened while I was stopped outside the theater, dropping my daughter off)!

Now, next question: What went wrong here? Surely something's meant to hold this "cable" on, so it doesn't fall off randomly!

hi, sorry to hear what happened, but it could have been worse.

your shift linkage bushing has failed.

replace it with this DORMAN 14055 Shift Linkage Bushing or similar.

And for the next person who comes along 5 years from now, some people say the clear ones 14055 might work on the transmission end of a 2003. The next year they went with a more reliable connection and you need the orange pair in set 14057. 14057 contains parts for both ends of the cable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyOxqQ2_0xY

Old thread but still a great resource for issues.

I saved this link some time ago in case...
An alternate source for a fix

Man, that was a royal pain to install. The bushing kept deforming when I tried to put it in. I finally managed to get it in (the clear one, as shown) on my 2003 using the methods shown in this video, though I had to use a pair of Vise-grips to actually get it to set. https://youtu.be/3x8eje3fhTE

Thanks. I'm definitely getting this if it ever breaks again; that bushing looks made to corrode and break after a few years. Why use a little piece of rubberized plastic on a mission-critical part??

And that is why the orange one is the better one. It is a 2 part piece that easily clicks on by hand with no deforming. Skip down to about 4 minutes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxG_j1uTM_I&t=370s The clear one is for the other end of the cable inside the console. Another advantage of the orange one is the pair is half the price and should always be in stock locally at any parts store.

From your earlier comment I thought those were only for the 2004 and later.
