Hi everyone.

So tried changing the shift knob and ended up breaking the parking release button on the knob (it popped out and the white clip in the middle of the release assembly is broken). Took off the knob an looks like the center white rod in the middle of the shift knob is also cracked I think.

The bypass button under won't work because it requires the parking release button to be pressed down.

Anyone know a bypass or what's part I need to fix it/how difficult it is.

It seems I may need to change the entire assembly?

I just had to buy a "new" full shifter assembly for mine. 2000 RS with 160k miles. I had done 40 miles of hard dirt mountain roads in the evening, got home, wouldn't shift to park. Left key in ignition overnight, in Neutral, e-brake on. Drove to work next day, took it to Tranny shop across street. They said they've seen it a few times, but is rare... Put in a nice "used" assembly, full fluid flush, and good to go... My little light down there doesn't show what gear I'm in, but oh well.
