Well, I know what *I* would do. I would start taking stuff apart and
see why the release button doesn't move like it did. But that's just me,
it may not be for you. When something broke years ago in the
transmission of my Toyota truck, I ripped it out and took it apart.
Several people told me I was nuts and would never get it back togethr. I
pulled out the counter gear with a broken tooth, replaced it and put it
back in the truck. Drove it until I traded it. You just have to decide
how far you think you can go without getting to a point where you can't
put it back. Either something in the knob is stuck where the button is
or the mechanism that releases when you hit the brack is not releasing.
Also, isn't there a place to poke your key to releas the shifter to work
on the car with the key off?
