Taurus shifter cable

I'm new here and if I could get some input with a problem I would appreciate it very much.

I have a 2000 ford Taurus SEL floor mounted shifter (automatic) and yesterday the shifter cable end came detached from the shifter arm on the transmission. It looks to be a bushing of sorts that goes into the arm that attaches to the trans that is the problem . It's broken and as such doesn't hold the shift cable end with the elongated slot used for adjustment on to the trans shift arm.

I'm having a problem locating it at any of the dealers. I would like to get the rubber bushing if possible but may have to replace the entire arm just to get the bushing.

I've thought of making a metal bushing to replace the rubber one and using a bolt with lock nuts installed from the bottom of the trans bracket facing upwards to duplicate the part but replacing the rubber bushing with the metal bolt to accomplish a repair that would be permanent.
Any down sides to that?
Any possibility of a part number for this bushing or shifter arm on the trans? The dealers all act like I'm speaking a foreign language when I inquired about this part.
Any help would be appreciated to solve this problem if there are any ford tech here which I'm sure there are.

Thanks guys.

Re: Taurus shifter cable

Try a transmission shop. They probably see this every week. auto wreckers ?
That bushing may be part of the shift cable. Ask to see a new one at your dealer and see if it's there.
