So some of you know I've had shifting problems and I finally got around to looking into thanks to interventions from Nick and Discobear.

So we disassembled the center console and in doing so we found what was jamming up the mechanism.

A who knows how old lighter and equally who knows how old remains of a joint.

Not to mention enough coins to excite a laundry mat!!

Dude, the cops are coming, get rid of that joint!

What? Where? There's nowhere to hide it. We're so busted dude!

Dude, look, just jam it in here. Yeah, the lighter too, dude!

Nice! I found a bunch of dental floss sticks and razor blades in the center console of mine. I wonder how things fall down there.
