Adjustment of Auto Shifter Lever

Ive had this issue for awhile but now when i go to park it and let go of the brake it will roll back a lil and then the shifter sounds like it kicks in park. lil freaky

but the shifter doesnt line up with the PRND12 positions-its a little to the right (so when i go to shift into D the lever is almost on the 1)

i did take a look under the dash and found this-dont know if this is whats causing it though

Junkyard again. If you ever don't know how to do anything, i'd say go to the junkyard and attempt to take it apart.
I think the way you take it apart is to screw the thumbscrew back, and you should be able to separate the black piece from the wire and it should come apart.

ok good. that is what im hoping for. on the other site the guy was talking about taking a 10/24 nut i think and screwing that down and then the white braket and then the thumb screw and again another nut.

Yea, he added a spacer to it. Anything will work really as long as it can stand the tension.
