So forgive me if these pictures aren't very good, but I have to disassemble the entire center console to get at this part. My problem is lately I started noticing that I was hearing this "click" noise coming from my AT shifter area whenever I started from a stop or decelerated to a stop. The click was very quiet and only happens when I first press the gas or reach 1-2mph before coming to a complete stop. I finally got access to my shifter and saw that the noise was coming from a small horizontal plastic bar that had a spring around it. The bar engages and disengages when I first hit the gas and am about to stop while applying the breaks. What exactly does this part do? It seems to either be loose or rubbing against something. I put some shin etsu grease on it, and I tried pulling on the plastic sheath over the part to see if I could make the noise go away (circled in red). The grease helped for a few months, but the noise is back. Is this part replaceable? And what is it? I know it shouldn't be making any noise, but it seems it definitely should be engaging and disengaging at start/stop. But for some reason it's making a click noise as it locks into place and back out again. I'd appreciate some help fixing this. Hopefully, I can add better pictures, but the part I'm referring to is inside the red circled area in the pictures. So I don't have a direct shot unfortunately.

that the mechanism that prevents you from shifting into other gears (mainly from Drive to reverse and vice versa) without your foot depressed on the brake. Once you depress the pedal it clicks opening up the lock, and again when you let off it locks back.

Its common for those things to click on gated/button less shifters because the mechanism you are circling is what is in place of a button. Just learn to deal with it I guess lol.

Thanks for the explanation. But it's driving me crazy hearing it. Is it replaceable? Or would I have to replace the entire shifter assembly?
