Default ? Shifter Part Broke ? 2005 Bonniville

I own a 2005 Pontiac Bonneville SE that has the center console for shifting.

Like always, I went to press in the little button to shift from Park to Drive and the button popped out and I couldn't shift.

There is some sort of mechanism that moves a part in the shifter, that'* the only way to change gears.

Luckily it happened to me in my driveway so I could figure out a solution to at least get the car to change gears.

I popped that piece that fell out and put it back in the shifter, then it works but I have to continuously hold the part on the shifter, otherwise it falls out right away.

The other thing I can sometimes do is stick my hand in the shifter where the part fell out and press some buttons to get the shifter to change gears again.

Anyways, I'm confused. I don't feel like taking this to the shop to pay someone an over priced repair that I can probably figure out if someone gives me some much needed advice.

Thank You.

Russ

The shifter handle should just pop off it is held in with a staple pin, but like 95 SLE said get itfixed free under warranty.

I believe I only have a 36,000 mile warranty?

...unless this part would fall under a different part of the warrenty?
