If yall are anything like me and your Park Lock Out Mechanism breaks and you arent home, your car may be stranded for a few days until the replacement part comes in. Well i found a way that you can disengage the car out of park and drive your car home where it is safe and sound. I will post a video showing how to do this as well but for now all i have are pictures.
1. Remove your center console and disconnect all wires.
2. Find the broken pink thingy (it is visible from the passenger side of the shifter):
3. Using a screwdriver, place the end of the screwdriver behind the pink part and use the tip of the screwdriver to push the pink part forward. You must have your foot on the brake as if you were shifting into drive normally and while using the screwdriver you must also be "pulling" the shifter down as if to shift out of park and into drive.
If done correctly (it may take a couple of tries to figure out) pushing the pink part forward will allow the shifter to drop down into drive and you can be on your way. This is only a temp fix and you will have to do this every time to get your car out of park until fixed. I hope this helps some of you should this ever occur.

the bt replacemnt is on the way. it happened to me on saturday so the earliest they would receive my order was monday, so i figured i had 2 days to figure something out or pay 60 bucks to over night it. so i saved myself some money this way
the dealership told me it wasnt recalled for the charger
It states it is for chargers also on the doc. I just took the paper in to a dealer while I was out and about, the adviser made a phone call, then told me I was eligible. I didn't have any probs. Then I made an appt at my normal dealer who had my vin info already and comfirmed it also.
