Well, like I said, depending on how it came loose, if that is the problem, it is possible. Its not that it is messed up, its that it might have came loose because you have to snap it all the way on....if you dont know what I am talking about you really need to just take it back in to ford. Describe how it feels trying to go into those gears...does the stick slide into the 5th and 6th spots, or will the stick not slide up or down at all? There maybe something obstructing the linkage under the hood when trying to go into those gears if the stick will not slide up and down at all. Can some one post pics of the linkage locations? One is under the hood next to the intake manifold on the drivers side, and the other spot is under you middle console.

Well, I would check under the linkage under the hood. Other than that there isnt much you can do. Is there a problem with taking it back to the dealer?
