As title states that is our problem. I have taken it all apart watching vids on youtube about disassembly. I have all the pieces shown below removed and found one of the ears of the trim piece had snapped off (now glued back and reinforced), as well as the small little angular tab was dislodged now put back where it belongs as shown in 2nd pic. I cleaned up everything which as the whole thing was really dirty from years of dirt and debris falling into the sliders. I removed the tacky film off the plastic bezel with goo-gone and windex and now it shines and isn't all sticky.

Problem is the shifter still won't slide down past R. Maybe the cable or rachet has something stuck in it, I dunno? Any ideas what to check? Bright side to this is that the bezel is really clean now.
