well my shifter fell off one of my recent trips. the whole pivot bolt came loose. anyway i went to a rest stop and used their tools and fixed it, and fixed it properly when home. anyway i guess i shouldnt have reused the c-clip because the shifter fell off again, but this time the c-clip was to blame. so does anyone know what size clip i need? i dont have anyway of accurately measuring. and does anyone know where i should go to pick up a new one?

I had the same thing happen, and to replace the c-clip i went to my local O'Reillys auto parts and bought a variety pack of clips for a couple of bucks and now i have a few extra. Thats what i suggest you do.

Did you use snap ring pliers to remove the snap ring?

If it was still flat after being removed, it should be reusable. If it was "tortured" during removal, it likely got deformed and thus screwed up.

no i just used a flat head to gently get one side off. then pulled it off by hand. i did check it and it was flat. i guess it must have been expanded and been loose.
