View Full Version : Gear Shift Button

My daughter called me the other day to say that when she got in her 99 GT automatic, that the push button on the shifter was in her cup holder. She was able to go from Park/Reverse/Drive by sticking her finger in the vacated area and pushing the release.

She came home from college last night, and I looked at it. The button itself does not seem to be broken, the release clip and post seem to be intact. However, when I tried to put it back in, it does not "catch" and falls back out. Is it possible that there is something else on the floor, ie a spring or is there a "trick" to reinstalling the button, or did something bust off inside? Can these shifters be purchased?
