My shifter became loose then came apart as I was backing her up in the yard. Anyway, I found a nut had come off and the pin itself was out of the mechanism. Then I saw that the ball joint for the cable, at the bottom of the stick was also off. I ordered the alignment part but I wound up judging by eye where it needed to be for the cable adjustment. (I saw some playing with one on youtube it was really easy to work with. (So far me and the car have had no real difficulties with basic repairs).  
I realized that the existing washers where a bit worn so I replaced them with some nylon washers. These were much larger in diameter. I also got two star washers but use only one. I saw that the nuts had a locking pattern on them but decided to use one on the nut that had come off. I also added a bit of blue thread lock to it for my peace of mind. The reason I am showing all this is because I want to hopefully remove some apprehension in doing these small repairs. It took me a while before I was comfortable working on my vehicles, but I still get professional advice. 

The  top and bottom requires an allen key and 18 crescent. I forgot the size for the allen bit it was large.   

Anyway, here are the photos .... ?
