Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
There is a spring behind this shift button. It may require the shifter button to be removed and have this spring checked and grease added to the button if it keeps sticking. Other wise it may need a new shifter handle assembly. It is not that easy to replace the shifter knob due to the over drive button on the shifter knob ( if equip ). If you don't have the OD button, the knob assembly would be easy to replace. When it has the OD button it has a wiring harness that goes through the shifter which is a pain in the $%@@ to run though the shifter. Normally the connector is taken apart and wires pulled through. Then when installing the new shift knob, wires fished through and wires snapped back into the connector.
Do you have the OD button on your shift knob?
If you have the OD button, that makes things a little tricky. You can also try getting some silicone spray and spray it into the knob area and see if it lubricates the area so the button will work.
If the silicone spray does not free up the shift knob, then you may need to replace the shift knob assembly to resolve your issue. But I would try the silicone spray.
To see the spring, you need to push down the black plastic lower part of the shifter under the knob. That will expose the C clicp that holds the shifter knob down. If you attempt to remove the C clip, make sure you use extreme caution. The spring likes to launch and disappear...lol. Once you have the knob loose, and you pull up, the knob if remember right can pop out to access the spring. But normally debris like soda and coffee get on the button and that is what causes it to stick. So using silicone spray could break that down to free it up from sticking.
