you'll have to remove what panels you can to access the area of the spill and clean it more.

Tom - what panels are u talking about ?

@Clarence, Tom is referring to the center console as shown in the video I posted above.. this would mean a deconstruction of the shifter panel/console, cleaning and whipping all the parts. The video goes into more detail. I mean there isn't a true easy fix in this instance.. No spray cleaner would do the trick and get into those hard to reach places. Would be a good family project to tackle..
