Default 99 Grand Cherokee part question

From the 4wd shifter to the transfer case is a cable and at the end is a metal loop that goes around a pin coming out of the case. And then something goes on to keep that loop there but it is missing for me so I'm trying to find out if anyone knows what part that is. Is it a nut, a bushing, some common part??? 99 grand cherokee . I can take a pic if nobody gets what I mean

This isnt mine, i googled to find this, but it looks very similar. This pulls the level on the transfer case to the diff 4wd modes. I cant tell if this is held on by a nut or some special clip or what. imagine a ring going on a finger. the finger is the pin on the lever, the ring is the end connected to the wire that goes to your shifter. The ring will go over the finger, but it can easily come off sometimes as nothing is stopping it from lifting back off of the finger. if that makes sense. heres the google image: http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/i...cing/tcase.jpg


edit: another useful image googled. very much like this:

EDIT EDIT: i believe this is what im referring to in the diagrams:

I know what you're asking but don't know the answer because I've never looked. It seems there should be some kind of retainer either part of the cable end or a clip that goes over the pin.

Probably the best thing to do is go to a parts place and look at a new cable. If there is any obvious difference on the eye part, ask if they have the clip or whatever it needs.
