So I tried to start my van in error whilst still in gear! Then the gearstick got stuck, even with clutch it wouldn't shift to neutral easily, so applied some force and oops, the whole gear stick came off and spring.

But I can't figure it how it goes back on, doesn't look obvious, and I can't even decide if the odd shaped plastic is normal or its broken, hard to tell from the edge if broken as greasy.

So now I can't reverse until work this out, my shifter is a pull up to go into reverse, so logically something should lock into a lifting piece but can't seem to see how.
Hope someone more mechanical can a) tell me if its actually broken or just come off? b) how I can refit it, and/or temp get my gears working!
