Well the picture doesn't show what s_ranger is talking about , but i put a green arrow towards were you should look, and the two turqoise ones are where the cables usually break as well. at the end of the crinkly thing there are some brass pieces that hold them together. Check VFAQ, good source to find alot of answers to problems like this with pics. Hope that helps.
Grinding is very common with these cars. It's a early symptom of your syncros going bad in the trans. Personally I try not to downshift, it feels to me like I'm gonna break something on the stock trans whenever I do it. Especially if your engine is worked up with mods and your trans is still pretty much stock. But do you downshift at high rpms or do you ease it in when downshifting? Because I've noticed when downshifting at high rpms a lot you start to hear some things rattling after a while? Just a peice of advice to let you know for the future!
