1999 2.0 automatic shifter

861 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  what have i done
the button you push to put the automatic into drive or back to park likes to stick in. This allows for the shifter to be bumped into a lower gear or when you go to park it doesnt lock in to get the keys out.

This doesnt happen all the time, But I was wondering how do I take the top part off the shifter to clean it up and possibly lubricate it so it stops sticking in...any suggestions?

I ended up taking a spray bottle of 70% alcohol. spraying the button and working it in and out then wiping it off. it worked great for a day then stuck again so I repeated the alcohol and cleaning of the button a couple times now no more sticking :)
