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.
