On my '98 Malibu, the safety button (what you have to press to get out of park in conjunction with the break) on the gear shifter sticks. It it sticking so bad that it sometimes takes me minutes of trying to break it free. In summer, it is hard to press, but I usually don't have problems. In winter, it sticks and takes many tries of squeezing as hard as I can to break it free. The problem is the worst in the morning and isn't usually very bad during the day. My guess is that it either needs some lubrication or there is a bit of liquid in there. Any thoughts on how to improve this? It is getting pretty bad and extremely annoying when in a rush to get to work in the morning.
I park in an unheated shed and I live in MN.
