04 M66 Shifter Pops out of Gear Selector Cable on 5th Gear

Hi,
Previous owner installed Snabb Short Throw Shifter on my 04 VR.
Last night I noticed that shifter became very loose and it won't engage to any gear. I took the center console out and noticed that the Shifter is disconnected from the cable. I was able to put it back the shifter into the cable with very minor effort / force (i don't think it's normal. I presumed it should be very tight).
For whatever reason... It won't go to 5th gear and also disconnect itself from the cable.

Has anybody experienced similar issue? Is it the cable issue or Snabb short shifter or both?

Thanks!

Thank you all the the comments.

i mentioned the 5th gear as I can easily replicate the issue, but reverse or 6th (shifting far to the right hand side) also get cause the shifter to pop-out of the cable.... Grrr....
I've researched on Snabb short throw, it's just a straight metal. I don't think it's the issue.
I suspect that it's worn bushing within the cable connector...
Oh well... my journey continues...
thanks!
