Mine broke at the shifter itself and not at the t case. After pulling the console I saw it the pos plastic clip broke. My fix to get home was a zip tie but I ended up turning a piece of Teflon on the lathe for a bushing then added an e clip to it. For that warm and fuzzy rigged feeling I stuck another zip tie on over that.

this is what i was talking about. reamed out the middle until it fit over the peg, then used needle nose pliers to squeeze into groove on peg.
