Default Volvo Electrical Problem

I have taken off the shifter cover (the **** wonít come out for some reason) and there doesnít seem to be any liquid inside. All fuses are intact as well.

the soda could have left some residues that are shorting out the wiring so a solid cleaning is due or you may have some corrosion (Coke is acidic - it can be used to take paint off things like golf club heads!). I had a friend who's battery kept dying and it turned out there was an orange peel in the lighter socket! The shifter **** should pull straight up and off.

Ok, so the **** is out. Is there a video or step by step anyone could recommend for cleaning this sucker out? Iíve replaced the CCM at this point and the blower still wonít turn off.
