Slip the ball into the socket and secure it with a rubber band , tape , zip tie,,,or excess Oxford commas.

My guess is the plastic cup inside cracked or expired.

Been a long time since I worked on a 98 or older P80. Is there not a little locking pin that holds the lever onto the ball end?

Hi,

Oh i dont know yet i havent looked at it in detail yet. I thought it just snaps on thought that is what everyone is saying.
I’ve been driving a Volvo long before anyone ever paid me to drive one.

Hi,

Oh so it is plastic inside? Figures.

Yeah whatever holds the cup onto the ball must have deteriorated.

I expect you've resolved this by now but the same happened to me today. Yes it's the plastic inner clip that just crumbles away. I'm not keen on rubber bands to hold it in place as i'll forget, they'll perish and come off again.

The part that i've opted to replace this with is one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-Ca ... 3700299524

After all, the Volvo part is just two ball ends and a link rod, all I need to do here is match the length by cutting. I was going to make my own by purchasing the ball ends and a bit of threaded rod, then for the same amount of money found the "universal part".

The ball is a standard 8mm ball, what could possibly go wrong?! :)

Looks like plastic version of old carburetor throttle linkage. 8mm would be close to 5/16 ball. Might try general hardware store assortment bins. Sorry - you are in UK. nevermind............

Yes indeed, I could have just bought one end but then i'd have needed a longer rod. The end that has broken is the one with the larger piece rather than the shorter more standard size.
Plus, no point going out searching for one when the magic of Ebay can have one delivered free within a day or two. :)
