Customer Question

Hi I have an Peugeot expert van and the gear lever cable has come away from the gear stick. The top has broken off completely so these no way i can just push it back on. I managed to tie a cable tie around it to force into first so i could slowly limp home. but now I need to fix it. Is this a full on mechanic jos as the whole cable needs to be replaced or can i simply get the plastic head part and replace it.
Any help welcome as its saturday and i need my van for work monday?

Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
The entire cable has to be replaced as the part that broke free is not sold seperate from the cable assembly. The cable runs through all the way to the gearbox and is not a very easy job,yes this would be a job for a garage or a mobile mechanic.
