Agreed - this is what I am currently attempting.. however, I don't have the available tools and lift to get to the underside of the vehicle.

To get the assembly out of the interior is surprisingly easy. Just a few Hex20 screws and some clips. 4 bolts hold the whole assembly in on the inside of the car. I got this far..

However, you need to remove part of the exhaust heatshield, and I cannot get to that point without a lift. Trying to find a friend that can assist. I pulled out the whole air intake system, battery and I can get to the actual gear selector on the topside of the steptronic. Thats as far as I can get...

Once the whole shifter assembly is out, it can be opened, and a tiny spring holds back a white lever that covers a sensor.. that's it.. the tiny little spring. Either replace, or you can rebend the bigger half of the spring to the right shape, and put it back in..
