I'm sorry for the confusion. I have just seen people saying GM started with a different part and improved it in later years. I have seen reviews that say the orange one won't stay on a 2002 and 2003 but the clear one will. I do not know any of this to be a fact. I do know the manufacturer says the orange one is for the transmission end and the clear one is for the console end. Autozone lists both parts for 2002-2009 but not which end they go on. From your experience it appears either one can be made to work. When I had to do mine I had seen someone using the orange part in a video. I compared them in the store and they looked to be different sizes so I paid a little more and bought the set with both clear and orange and it was very easy to install by hand. Literally a 5 minute job including getting a tarp to work on the ground outside. Both the bushing and retainer clicked into place fairly easily with no tools needed. I think the clear one is slightly smaller and would have been much harder.

I'm glad you got yours done without any damage. I saw one review where someone broke the plastic cable end trying to get the clear one installed.

Interesting. The kit I got from Autozone had a clear part and a white part. Either looked like it would fit, but the white part had a flange meaning it had to go in from the outside of the cable and then hook on to the transmission nodule. I tried both, and this was what worked
