Default Shift linkage retainer?

Hey im sorry if this has been posted already, the only reason i didnt search for it is because i dont know what its called. My friend has a 95 saturn sc2 5speed. On the cable for the side to side movement in the shifter there is a little retainer on it under the hood, well it fell off and now the car allows him to get in every gear but 1st and 2nd. So my question is, what is that retainer piece called and how big could it be estimated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Shift lever cable retainer is what it is called, if your talking about under the hood were the shiftcables connect to the tranny.

Their should be 2 Horseshoe clips

If he is missing one or both, that would definitly be a problem in shifting.

you can get them at a saturn or gm dealer ship.. their only a buck or 2.

take ur VIN: and tell them u need 2 Shift Lever Cable Retainers.

If it's the clip that holds the cable HOUSING (the part that doesn't move) to the tranny case, it's the horseshoe clip as psy describes. See http://www.saturnfans.com/photos/sho...9222/size/big/

If it's the clip that attaches the cable END (that part that DOES move) to the linkage, it's a much smaller clip; don't have a photo of it.

In either case, it's dealer time. I don't even see the parts on saturnparts.net. You might want to look around back there under the hood; the clip might have fallen onto or lodged into some spot, and be retrievable. I knocked the horsehoe clip off my fore-aft cable a while back; while diagosing it, it fell to the ground in the parking lot. Do you have one of those magnets on the end of a flexible or telescoping wand? It might be worth fishing around back there, esp. places you can't see.
