The reverse collar on my shifter sticks up at the top when shifting out of reverse. Shouldn't it self-release and go back down? I have to push it back down, although it doesn't take any effort. I thought I'd try some graphite or silicone spray to see if that would help. Sure makes for interesting shifting if I forget to push it back down. I tried the search on this for my '11 Touring but came up with no matching topics. If anyone else has had this problem I would welcome a reply.

When i got my OBX short shifter installed at the dealership they said they've put a ton of lube as they had experience with clients where it sticked.
I had no problem with my short shifter in the last 3 years

if you can figure out how to get the knob off it should be easy to lube. the reverse collar on mine extends up inside of it.
