Have '92 Cavalier with manual transmission that suddenly lost its
ability to shift gears. The shift lever just flops around.
This same exact thing happened 5 or 6 years ago & the problem was a
black rubber/plastic grommet that attaches the linkage to the shift
lever under the console. Went to the local GM dealer & had to purchase
an entire linkage assembly just to get this "special" grommet that
simply snaps on & instantly fixes the problem.
The exact same thing has happened again! The grommet has deteriorated
& the linkage has fell away from the shift lever.
Does anyone know where to buy this grommet (maybe this is not the
right term, rubber bushing maybe?) without having to buy the entire
linkage assembly, when all I need is this little rubber piece?
