Don't know when it happenned but the selector on the steering column is off one click - the car is in park when the selector says "R". The car is in neutral when the selctor says "D". How do I correct? Do I need to pull the steering wheel?

You need to remove the upper instrument panel steering columnn cover and access the mechanism inside there. You have an adjustment thumbwheel in there.

There is also the other end at the transmission by the Transmission Range sensor - you can adjust there also. Not sure which side loosened up on you.
