I cannot view You tube as it is banned in China but a clicking sound when moving the lever is usually the little bushes. Reuse the clip as you cannot buy that new.

just an FYI.. you can bypass any internet blocking ,even in china, using a VPN. Anyway, I did post a pic as well. Is that the same area as in the computer print out ? If so, the bushing up there seemed like it was ok.

The picture looks correct, but you will not be able to tell if the bushing is good or badly worn until you remove it.

There is no room is what mechanics do all the time, figure it out. A plain blade screwdriver helps to unclip it.

NO it is done under the car and not that difficult if you try.

Thanks.

Perhaps a little bit of tough love is what I need here.

From looking at the picture I took, perhaps I just need to get at it from behind where I took the picture.

Do you have any advice for me before I get under there again?

I think other instructions I read say put shifter in Neutral before attempting ?

Thanks

This is not a brain stormer, put the shifter in p and the get under and look at the position, the move the shifter completely the other way and look from underneath again, then you will figure it out.

SOLVED

On the bottom of the shifter is the troublesome bushing. Connected to this bushing is a ROD that eventually goes to the transmission. This rod can be adjusted using a Torx 27 bit. Make sure the car and transmission are OFFICIALLY in neutral. Regardless of where the actual shifter thinks it is

Undo the metal clip and separate the rod.
Loosen the connector on the end of the rod w/ T27 bit.
Place rod into bushing and tighten T27 screw.
Verify that the shifter shifts like it's supposed to !
