Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
I dont see a manual procedure myself on releasing the shifter when it is stuck like this here.This is a model that doesnt have a manual release.What fails and causes this issue is the shifter release electrical solenoid on the shifter itself.This can be replaced separate of the shifter now as before you had to replace the entire shifter.
It is located on the side of the shifter assembly.
In some cases if you can get the shifter trim off or up you can look down inside the shifter and see an electrical solenoid (the one that usually needs replaced) and try and actuate it with a screw driver or similar.It should be to the left or right of the shifter shaft shown below.
