1997 Mustang V6-Hard Shifting Auto Trans Out of Park

97 V6 vert with 100K miles.
Generally in the morning when cold, I have trouble shifting out of park into the other gears. The shifter release button doesn't depress fully and I need to play with it for a while before releasing. After warming up, shifting out of park is usually much easier. Feels maybe like a cable wear/lubrication issue, but not sure. Any advice? Also, how to remove shifter handle for inspection? thanks

Not really sure the answer to your question: but what condition is your tranny fluid? Is it red and full (that's good) -- or brown (burnt) and low (that's bad)?
