Default Transmission Mystery Part

Ok it's only a mystery to me so far ... took my 2001 PT in for a battery, the kid came out to show me something, under or just next to the battery holder was an arm. He asked if I had trouble shifting - yeah, getting it into reverse is a crap shoot. Well that's why, and pointed to the cable or arm, it looked like it had a missing nut and a broken plastic disk that the arm or cable warped around the bit of plastic still there looked to be slightly larger than a quarter.

Anyone know what part that might be? or can someone point me in the direction of a manual transmission parts diagram?
Many thanks and happy driving-

cruserdad1976,

Thanks, it dawned on me as soon as I posted it I could take a picture!
It's hard to make out but there is a lever that extends below the battery compartment.
Ah ... and the bit of black plastic that was inside the yellow ring must have dropped off.


Woot! found it!

Ouch $149.00
