    Default Gear linkage cable popped off. 1.9 120

    As per title, the gear linkage cable popped off this morning, currently it’s got a cable tie holding it in place. Tried popping it back in but the cup must be too worn and it’s very loose.
    The vivaro and a few other vans have a metal clip available online to sort these problems out. Anything similar for the vectra? Had a look but found nothing. Don’t fancy buying new cables if I can find a solution with a clip.
