problem #1

Contour 3.2L V6

Plastic clip that holds shifter linkage to the shifting cable broke. Felt like shifter was flopping around. Dealer doesn't sell clip separately, Used a positive terminal battery post cap from a new battery. Insert plug into shifter cable end, push linkage post through the "+" in center of battery cap. Has worked well for over 4 years with no issues. (I keep an extra cap in the glove box)
