Console Gear Shift on 2002 Mercury Sable

I went to move my car into the garage and started it. The gear shifter felt like it slipped out of position and now the car won't go into any gear - I also can't remove the key because the console shifter won't go all the way forward. It's probably disconnected from the transmission linkage, but how can I get at the I check underneath the car or start taking the console apart?
