I am a new owner of an 87 Fiero. My shifting cable appearnetly is missing something on the transaxle side which cause the plastic fitting to come up and off of the little ball post. After close inspection, I see only plastic inside that end. Should there be an insert or is it an insert that pops on from the top?

If I saw a proper one, I could come up with a fix but I am not sure what if anything that I am missing. Any input would be gladly appreciated!

No, that is the Throttle Valve cable.

And you're not missing anything. Over time and lots of use the plastic just gives up the ghost and doesn't clip on very well. Much like the sensors plugs that the clips snap off of left and right. Rodney's got a good fix there for the price. I'm sure you could rig your own as long as you find some kinda of pipe 3/8" OD to act as a guide. That way the plastic eye won't sit loose over, say, just a bolt thread. If you drill out the old retaining ball j believe you end up using a 1/4" bolt.

For the time and effort, vs 19$, personally I'd just buy the part that's been working for others for a while. Should be a permanent fix unless your cable physically separates somewhere down the road.
