AutoKnowledge Response:

We created a saved workspace looking at which vehicles have deleted a visible cover for their shift lock release:
 
 
The Images Cart tab is the most relevant since it shows any shifter areas that DO NOT have a shift lock release cover.

  • Acura
  • Audi
  • BMW
  • Buick
  • Cadillac
  • Chevrolet
  • Chrysler
  • Dodge
  • Fiat
  • Ford
  • GMC

We also created an Excel workbook showing the shifter area of any vehicle we encountered that has deleted a visible shift lock release cover.
