Default I screwed up. Bad.

First time ebay purchase. the only one I've ever made.

Fidanza short throw shifter, seems like a good price, Fidanza has a name, and it advertised for the 93-95 Subaru tranny (Impreza & Legacy).

Here's the item

So I get the shifter today. Looks pretty nice, i'm excited. So excited that I go and rip out the stock one, and the ball on the end of the shifter (the other end, not the end you put your hand on) breaks on the way out.

So I put the shifter in, and realize that it doesn't fit my car. WTF?!

There's no fork, like the stock one. It looks like the one for the 97+ subarus. I should've realized this before I messed my stock one up.

I'm so F**ked.

What should I do?

Obviously, I'm going to contact the guy and ask him if he sent me the wrong one, and if I can get my money back.

In the meantime, I can't pull up on my shifter, otherwise it might come out of its socket.


*argh!*

note: If I can't get my money back, there's a Fidanza short throw shifter for a 97+ Legacy F/S brand new.
