I was changing out the valve cover gasket on my 1996 Cherokee, and was moving the cables and bracket out of the way. Throttle cable uses a ball and socket, cruise control uses a slip on clip, and the kickdown cable uses the same kind of clip.

Not sure what I did, but the kickdown clip broke off at the place where it attaches with the other cables to the throttle lever.

I just got new tires... Is there a quick and dependable way to fix this?

Thank you,
-William

Sorry, I don't have a way of getting a good pic in right this moment, but this thread will show what I'm taking about:

You won't find a quick fix for that. You will need another cable. Wrecking yard is your friend there

If it is the same clip that is used on the cruise control end, they sell a repair kit for it on Amazon.
