2003 ION-1 Sedan
Default Ion manual shift cable broken

Got an 03 Saturn ion 1 Base, 5 speed manual. Last couple weeks I've noticed in the real cold weather the shifter is rather stuck/frozen until the car warms up , then it shifts great. I've been letting it warm up before I drive it and its worked out well....until today. Got in it after work and and the right shifter cable snapped. Pulled the boot and actually drove it home using vise grips, real pain. But I have it home now and started looking for replacement shift cable and can't find any. Called the Gm dealership they want 140$ for one cable. Has anyone else ran into this problem? is there a generic Gm cable that can be used? Or even the Ion redline cables? All the shift assemblies I found on eBay are for automatic ions ... Any help appreciated let me know
Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Ion manual shift cable broken

Just an FYI that the shift cables on 2003 models (p/n 22670918) are different than those on 2004-2007 models (p/n 15277760). I've attached a TSB that explains the differences.

Also, the shift cables in Red Line Ions (p/n 10383794) are different from regular Ions.
