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 ?
