SHIFTER ASSY.

2005 Jaguar XJ8

Interior problem
2005 Jaguar XJ8 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

what do I have to do to remove the center consol so I can remove shifter assy to dry out the switches. Something was spilled on the shifter and will not come out of park. Does jaguar have an o.B.D.2 plug like the us cars do because I have some faults an the dash because I disconnected the batt. I didn't have them untill I did that. I just couldn't get it out of park.
