2003 ford excursion 6.0L eddie bauer. So the bracket that the shift cable attaches too next to the trannie rusted out to the point that the cable came loose I have a new bracket from ford and it looks like it will work, but I can't figure out how to get the shift cable onto it. squeezing it doesn't seem to help and when I tried to use a screwdriver to lever it out a bit the damn tab broke off, lucky for me I have a spare shift cable to use. But I can't get the thing on even with liberal use of lubricant(silicone). Is there a key or something I can buy to do this without breaking the tab that holds it tight to the bracket. In case it is important it's a torqshift 5r110w.
