Q: Transmission shifter is stuck in neutral. on 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Just replaced alternator and vehicle runs great. But the shifter won't move out of neutral. Vehicle has been sitting for a yr. Thinking probably rusted or dirty linkage. Have no idea how to check that on the vehicle. Mechanic that put on alternatorm said linkage was tight, so could I use WD 40 on it to loosen it up. Don't want to force it.

OKAY where is the linkage located on the vehicle? I have tried to google a diagram of the linkage area and come up with nothing. thanks
