anyone out there replaced their gearbox on a 02-04 mc with the midlands 5sp? im looking through the oem diagrams to find the clip that locates over the up-down selector lever to keep it in place on the pivot-shaft (i broke the old one). do you think i can find it? i broke the clip on disassembly and thought nothing of replacing it, but now i have a flimsy wire-tie to keep it in place because it is proving a very difficult task. picture attached for reference.

its a special plastic clip with small prongs which break off as soon as you remove it. need a new one quick before my temporary wire-tie gives up. anyone???

Looking at the diagram, it looks like it comes as part of the larger piece (No 11). Probably not an item that you can buy alone.

I've replaced a few gearboxes, I am not sure which clip you mean.
Is it the clip on the shifter cable that holds it in place on the bracket?
Do you have pic?
