Do you have problems engaging any other gears?
First thing you should do is to inspect the rubber bushings at the cable ends where the cables attach to the shift linkage on the transmission. If the bushings are okay, you will need to adjust the shift cables.
The console around the shifter can be removed by prying up at the front edge first and then lifting it out.
Then adjust the shift cables by prying up on the lock and repositioning the cable housing as shown in the picture below. There are two cables, you likely only need to adjust the one cable that moves when the shifter is moved forward and backward.
