Viggen 4dr shifter cable Part number?

Before I begin, I did search the forums(granted I'm horrendous when it comes to searches). I just didnt find what I was looking for, so please forgive me if this has been covered.

Anyways Its story time!
I was driving my car all day, no problems pulled into the mall parked it and I didn't stall. When I came back out and went to drive home, Nothing happened at all. I was stuck in 4th somehow, shift lever was everywhere. I got it towed to an unfortunately very busy mechanic.(feel bad for the guy) He told me that the sifter cable was busted, and he told me he has no idea what labor or what the part would cost. I told him I'd do everything I can to help him out.

I did find a part I'm just not sure if it is "The" part.
eEuroparts has this code for a shifter cable 4776027
it does say 9-3 all but when i run it through a comparability check it only says viggen 2 door not 4 door. Is there actually a difference, or did someone get lazy at the keyboard?

EDIT:A link would be helpful.....http://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/4843...Cable-4776027/

The part info for that link says for automatic transmissions. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I don't think the Viggens have a shifter cable, they have a manual shifter linkage that has a bolt that directly links the shifter to the transmission. But I'm not sure why it would be stuck in 4th gear. Hopefully someone else will be able to chime in.

rl0089's right, there's no shift cable for any of the Viggens, and all Viggens came with manual transmissions. That new eeuroparts tool is wrong.

The connection between the shifter and the shift linkage on the trans is a rod with a knurled end.

The knurled-end side is on the transmission shift linkage side, and loosening a through-bolt with a lock nut on the end of it allows for adjustment. It sounds like the shifter rod may have slipped out of the transmission shift linkage.

Here's the part where the connection is on the transmission side: http://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/4965...embly-4626321/

At the bottom of the pic you can see a black plastic disk with a nylon lock washer, the rod is inserted into that, and the nut that you can see in the pic is then tightened to choke around the rod.

Make sure you cross shop any part numbers before ordering from the New eeruoparts, they've been quite a bit more expensive (like 30% more) compared to other places on most of the parts I've cross checked there recently.

HUH, how did I miss that......well I guess that explains why you dont shop after getting up at 4 am for a fishing trip..... Drew, so I would have to take a ride down to the shop to confirm this(the mechanic said he kept seeing somehting moving around while another guy ran it through the gears), but if im understanding you correctly its not a part but rather a tightening of a bolt i need?

Well...I don't know for sure, hopefully though. . The symptoms you describe line-up with the shifter rod being out of place. Hopefully that's the case because that's an easy one to fix.

Be sure to followup with the diagnosis. These cars aren't anything crazy, any competent mechanic with a metric tool set can work on them.

SHEEEE LIIIIIIVVVVVEEEES!.....now that I got that out

What the actual problem was, was the linkage itself
( i am trying to add a pic i hop it works) but essentially what happened was on that little 4 inch rod in the linkage one of the plastic grips cracked in half, allowing it to slip out. The fix was a bit of very strong epoxy where the crack was and hose clamps to hold it together. Otherwise I'd have to buy the whole assembly. While driving it home it felt actually really solid. I'm not a 100% but I think the gear changes feel a little stiffer then when I dropped it off.
