You could probably repair/rebuild that tab with some JB Weld. Force bacto shape as well as you can, Gob JB Weld all aver it, and then sand it down close to it'* original size.

See what happens when you don't tell us the whole story???

The Zip tie idea might be the best for now. Or, when you get a chance, take the console apart.

Smash the rest off that plastic off cable, and slide on an electrical terminal with set screw. One that has a hole big enuff to fit over that round pin(or drill it out) and keep it there with a c clip.




tie would work for awhile

EPOXY (and a tie) put a friends Yugo wiper assembly back together with epoxy and it held till it went to junkyard.

Ignore if it locks in park

sucks Harofreak....bet it would be a bitch to replace whole dam thing

OK, after reading GXP'* idea, forcing me to go back and look at the pics again... Yeah, my idea won't work nearly as easily as I thought it would when I came up with it.

Looks like our GXP buddy may be on a better track....
