auto shifter won't release from park to drive

I saw this same problem somewhere on the forum a while back, can't find it. This weekend i took out the interior to herculine and today I bolted everything back in. I go to depress the button on the side of the auto gear knob and it will not move from park. However when i remove the knob and press down on the white stem, it will shift. HELP
Cheers,
Dan

You may need a new stem or make one from a plastic hanger or chop stick?...

Gone but not forgotten.

the stem possibly snapped or is not hooked onto the right place? Starting to make sense...
Thanks Knuckelhead!

Just found 2 different threads with similar problems, looks like the shifter stem (plastic piece) is broken. This means i'll have to buy a whole new assembly (stealership) or use my Macgyver skills and use a chop stick or a piece of plastic clothes-hanger to replace the stem with! WOOO
Cheers,
Dan
