I assume you have a full length console. looks like you may be missing this piece.

Try and take a picture of all you have (pieces) then another picture as placed in car to show gap.

This could help us understand better your problem and help us offer solutions.

Did it all fit before? Hard to tell from the picture but you might have to move the console (big part) forward. It looks like the clock piece is not clearing the shifter selector plastic piece, is this correct?

My books do not show a different part number for automatic vs. 4 speed in the exploded view.

Does the selector indicator screw on to the 4 posts in the shifter housing? Trying to see if one of the parts may be incorrect for the model or year.

Don't the tabs go under the area just forward the ash tray?

Cant get to mine right now to look...

Will e. I didnt have the shifter and the metal part that goes with it. So maybe thats the part with the problem

Bkdunha. The selector fits perfect on the 4 post

Ray. Yes the tabs goes in front of the ashtray. A think the problem its at the bottom. Its were it seems not to be fitting properly. And its goes all the way to the front but its the selector idicator the one that dosent let the cover go down
