I could not get the key out of ignition. Mechanic said it was a problem with some kind of pin in shift gear lever and fixed it. He said that if it broke again, probably whole gear shift assembly needed to be replace.
Need to replace 2008 Explorer Gear Shift Selector Lever. How much does it cost? on 2008 Ford Explorer
Has it broken again??
DEPENDS ON WHICH PART IS BROKEN. THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE RACK AND ROD ARE BAD.
