gear cable linkage

There are two cables that connect the gear lever to the gearbox; these connect with a nylon socket which fits over steel nipples on the gear
shaft. Not surprisngly this nylon socket has started to wear and occasionally falls off -leaving you unable to select a gear - it only takes a second to pop back on but is a PITA

To replace this 5p bit of nylon Ford want 70 for the complete two cable asembly and guide + labour - probably best part of 200 by the time we get VAT etc Anyone else had the same problem - anyone found a solution ?
