If I might ask, Does the shifter seem to be binding. Many times the shifter bezel is binding, if the knob or bezel is binding when you put it in park, the bezel would need to be replaced. There are other reasons for this, but the bezel is a more common problem on this model.

According to the info I found the bezel needs replacing. If you know how to take it off it would help for now.

I sometimes can get it out if I turn the key and turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and back to the right. It is stuck in there now though and unable to get out.
