If it's limp, you don't need balls

tkae off the center counsel and there should be a plastic clip on one of the sides of the shifter and it is probably stuck down. or you could do the key release it is a removable tab you start the car with one key or a flat head jamed down there and turn the car on in the drive position it will not engage the gear but it might trick the computer into thinking it is out of limp mode. hope that helps.
