I didn't. I opted for the "take the console off and soak the shifter box in penetrating fluid then pry, pry, pry" It worked but took a while. This evening as I was moving the disco into the garage to begin surgery, I was able to move the shifter again. Thank God.
In all honesty the console job isn't so bad. The second time would have gone much quicker.
What do you mean stuck? Diff lock or high/low? If high/low its most likely the solenoid. Pull it and seal it back up. If diff lock, the it might be the switch, look in the manual on the adjustment procedure.
