It is extremely difficult to push between gears b/c it is crumpled up at bottom part. Just seems to be off track. Hoping it is that easy but wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Someone told me if it is broken the entire wood grain section has to be bought (480.00+ ). Surely not?

    It will have to be replaced, shop around for a replacement and you have an Infiniti, what do you expect to pay, should have gotten a Toyota.

    if I recall correctly, you can take it apart, clean it and put it back together, the sliding part fits in a rail and it's usually because the rail that the accordion style cover rides in is gummed up and causes the cover to jam and bind.

    Spray it good with WD-40 and work it back & forth, spray it again!
