Squeak noise near shift selector

I have a 1991 420 SEL with about 75,000 miles. Recently started a squeaking noise around the area of the selector lever while driving. If I put hand pressure on the lever, the noise stops. It's driving me nuts!! I'm sure that it needs a drop of lubricant somewhere in that area.

I already removed the center console around the selector lever and oiled up the base of the lever, but to no avail. Still squeaks..

I also have the maintenance information on CD ROM, but cannot find anything dealing with the assembly of the transmission selector lever or anything in that area that would give me a clue as to where to lubricate.

Any ideas anyone?????

Other than that, I love this car...
