And it gets worse, you have to take the center console off to fix this thing.
at this point you have 2 options:
Either a used shifter assembly (about 100 bucks, you might wanna upgrade to the 1994 style while you're at it, just make sure the shifter pattern is the same)
Contact the dealer and see if you can get the broken part (must be cheaper than the first option, but the question here is do they sell that thing by itself)
Either way you go, you still have to take the shifter plastic box off to get it fixed = taking the center console off.
