    My 92 sc manual lost the "grommet" from the gear shift to the forward back
    throw cable. It was a bit funny actually. I got stuck in reverse after
    backing out of a parking spot. I had to keep backing 180 degrees around to
    another spot.

    Anyway, I removed the center console, put it in 3rd by pulling the cable by
    hand and used a lot of clutch to get home.

    Now the problem: I can't find anyone that sells the 25 cent "grommet" that
    holds the cable on the shifter. Saturn wants to sell me the ENTIRE cable
    for $200!

    Does anyone sell that little plastic piece?

    Any ideas out there? I friend of mine had the same failure and ended up
    machining a replacement "grommet" out of hard rubber.

    I called 6th planet, but they have not called back yet.

    My 92 sc manual lost the "grommet" from the gear shift to the forward back
    I lost the metal one that holds the cable to the tranny case(not the linkage
    itself, it anchors it to the case). Saturn stocked it and it was like .50c or
    something like that. I had heard from other people that Saturn only sells the
    whole assy but that was not true in my case. Maybe you can call another dealer
    or talk to the parts manager at your dealer to see if they can help(maybe the
    grommet is "officially" called something different and the person you talked to
    didn't know about it).

    I think 6th planet will only sell you the whole cable assy.
