Do you mean its detached from the cable? If so, see if you can reach the attachment point for the cable and pull in direction of the cable to release.

2003 ford focus slips from park to reverse without the car being on or using the push button on the shifter

If there is no bellcrank and the cable goes directly into the tranny you may have to cut the cable, Not easy in the parking lot! The shifter will have to be in neutral to start and allow for steering..... Beyond this is a tow

I have a 2003 LR Ford Focus Manual 1.8. While driving and changing gears, I lost all gears the car is is neutral with no feeling of selecting any gears.

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.
