If you still have the pieces you can use super glue, the kind with the brush applicator worked well for me. Apologies I should of warned about the brittle plastic. Because it broke on me too.

@herqulees I found this, its much like other TV cable ends, think it would be a good replacement? break off the old plastic one and fit this on the end...

I fixed one of those with 3M Structural Adhesive. The dealer said you have to buy the whole damn cable. Ha Ha fixed it myself. Sometimes I get furious at ChryCo for making cheap plastic stuff, the older style of trans cable adjustment was better.

Not only did I fix that stupid clip, also fixed the grill reinforcement panel, the loom for the plug wires on the 4.0, and other cheap plastic bits.

pick up some of this stuff, its like magic....a guy who runs a local body shop supply store turned me on to this stuff, I bought it 10 years ago still using it LOL

Going from my memory of what the clip looked like that looks like an exact replacement to me. FYI the Jeep is still driveable, however I would not recommend any further than across town as the transmission no longer knows how to adjust it's shift points so it will pick the wrong gear a lot. I ended up driving about five miles on 45mph roads to a WalMart for superglue, other than accelerating from a stop (it would shift first - second - first (for a split second) - second - third) it was still driving fine.

I agree. From what I've seen throughout my Jeep and these forums it seems this Jeep has two weaknesses. Bad soldering, and plastic where metal should be (center console arm rest, this clip... Lol)

There are 2 different clips, one is the cable end (thats the one in the link) the other is the white plastic piece that you have to lift up to adjust the cable. The cable end does not break often, its the white piece that does.

I'm pretty sure it's the cable end that broke for him. That's what broke for me. The U shaped part that grabs on to the throttle body stayed on and the rest came off for me. I used some super glue and held it together for one minute in a WalMart parking lot then drove home. Lol

Yup that's an EXACT replica of how mine broke. That piece looks like it would work but if I were you I'd just put a dab of super glue on the old one and you'll be fine, as this happened to me over 5000miles ago and still no issues.

Edit: I bought a small thing of alcohol swabs from the pharmacy department and used them to wipe down the entire broken clip, then dabbed super glue where the clip cracked and held it together for about 60seconds. Just wanted to put in all the details in case you or anyone try the same.

fix it with glue and pick up that new one as a spare....

BTW, note to self, try not to futz with this crappy plastic bits in cold weather, if you have to warm up the plastic with a hair dryer. Same goes for those crappy little retainers that hold the headlights on the adjusters. I picked up 4 spare ones from the dealer when I thought of it one day...

As I said before that piece looks like an exact fit, only way I could tell you exactly is if I had it in my hand but superglue has held mine for over 5000miles now which broke the exact same way as yours.
As LouC said fix it with super glue and order that one as a back up.
