Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

If you need to move your shifter and it's not working properly, and either you don't have your key. Your vehicle needs to get towed, and you need to pull it out of gear. What you can do is take a flat blade screwdriver and take this little cover off here.

With your foot on the brake, and you can take the screwdriver push this little tab down, then can move throughout the gears. Stick it in neutral and put it where it needs to go. Just make sure you have your foot on the brake. Put it back, and then we can put the cover back on. Just line it up, and push it down.

Thanks for watching. Visit us at for quality auto parts, fast and free shipping, and the best customer service in the industry.
