Q: Shift Lock override button stuck on 2000 Volvo V70 XC

The shift lock override button is stuck down, and I cannot remove key. I have tried lubricating and prying up but with no luck. How do you remove the panel so I can clean around the button?

You have to remove the center console, then the shift knob so you can pull up the gearshift cover. Then you can gain access to the button.
I like to clean it really good and file the button hole so it's a bit bigger and is less likely to jam up.
It's not something I can easily explain here, sorry. I suggest you get an online manual from Alldata or Mitchell. They will have images and step by step instructions.
