WONT GO INTO GEAR

2004 Ford Taurus • 6 cylinder Automatic • 145,000 miles

My gear shift button will not engage to be shifted out of park. The button cannot be fully depressed to engage so it doesn't slide out of gear and I am stuck in park. No trouble with the transmission prior to this. Could it be worn gear shaft? How easily can I fix this?

Make sure you rfoot is on brake as it won't go if not. This may be a one piece assembly so you would have to check at dealer. It may be abent rod there. See pic
