Shifter is difficult to move

it appears the sliding piece that surrounds the shifter is stuck and not sliding properly. this makes if very difficult to move shifter out of park to reverse or drive. Now we can not manual shift from 1st to drive. Any suggestions how to repair or how to replace?

With a small screw driver, remove the bezel chrome trim, then bezel shifter. After is all open, try shifting again to see if there is something visually wrong with it.

Re: Shifter is difficult to move

could be a number of things. Do like IJeep says and remove the bezels and let us know what you see. Could be a bad shifter or could be something stuck in the cables
