Purchased new shifter cables .5 volvo s60 new cables look

Customer Question

Purchased new shifter cables for 2004.5 volvo s60 new cables look slightly different on the gearbox end. One of them has an orange spring retainer and appears to be a little longer? I'm wondering if i need a new cable mount on the gearbox? Is there a service bulletin that explains this?

Ok, I have gone thru and they all show to be the correct part numbers for your vehicle and no service bulletins that I can find showing any changes in parts or the cable mounts or ends. I am going to opt out and see if another expert has better info than I do

Good morning,
Did you have any luck finding someone who has installed new shifter cables and encountered this problem? Is there a contact at Volvo cars that can assist?
