In looking at my 88 shop manual it looks like it may be hard to get this cable out of the transmission.
Its not hard, just a little fussy. The plastic base secures the cable sheath to the transmission but the cable inside of it attaches to a little rod or hook that goes deeper into the transmission. You need to get the cable hooked back onto it.
Note there is an adjustment procedure outlined in the service manual. I replaced my old cable because it had a bunch of melted areas on the sheathing, but I replaced it with one from the junkyard and I did not adjust it. It works fine. If you buy a new one (Rodney sells them), you'll almost certainly have to adjust it I would think.
