    I had it done under warranty. Someone knows how to do it and has posted it up before. I just forgot who it was.
    I think the chrome piece under the shifter slides down and exposes a screw or something like that.
    I couldnt figure out how to do it on my own either. The dealer may do it for free. Just ask.

    1. Take a razor blade and pop the chrome trim ring down from the bottom on the shifter.

    2. There is a set screws that need to be tightened. (Edited)

    3. Once they are tightened pop the trim ring back up.

    I like to use a razor blade so I don't scar the plastic trim ring (Old Installer Trick).

    One screw, and it is a Torx head (star-shaped). You could get an allen head wrench in there, though, if you don't have a set of Torx wrenches.
