I just bought a 2009 Ford Taurus Limited. While waiting in line to get the emission test I placed the shifter in park. When I moved it into drive I heard the sound of breaking plastic and a part falling in the console. The shifter continued to work as it should. The brake interlock, backup lights and audible backup warning still work.
I took the trim off the console and found the part laying on the bottom of the console.


Does anyone know what this part is or what it does?
Thanks, Terry

Could that be something that doesn't allow you to put in reverse at speed?

It could be. I'm not sure how to test that theory without blowing up the transmission.

Or it could prevent you from removing the key while in gear?

The shifter still seems to "feel" like it did before the break. It has the "notch" feel.

If it came out of the shifter, it will be something only sold in a complete shifter assembly.
