Default Right shift linkage shim popped out

On the right linkage the rubber or plastic grommet that goes into the rest of the tube and close to the mount for the shifter assembly popped out. I tried putting it back in using many methods but I just can't pop it back in. Does anyone have a shift linkage I can buy or know how to push the plastic back in ?

Booger Bushings offer upgrade replacements.

NAPA Autoparts has OEM like kits.

They can be softened in hot water for installation. Also, soapy water helps installation.

I trimmed mine a little with a razor and squeezed them in with a channel locks.. just the dorman ones they sell everywhere in the "help"section.

Recommend you use the stock ones if you'll be driving like a nut

If you go with the doorman, get a second one...they work fine and all but they wear out fairly fast. The doorman kit comes with enough to do both linkages and the linkage at the shifter.
had to 'fix' my shifter in the parking lot of a gas station with pipe cleaners to get me by until I got the part once.
