So recently when in drive i hear a clicking from what seems to be the gear shifter, right in front of it underneath i hear a clicking noise.

Im assuming something electronics wise went bad, a servo maybe? Its progressively getting worse.

Does anyone know what part this is i need to change? Maybe this is it?

what makes you think the part is bad versus the signal that is going TO the part?

Do you have any idea on how to diagnose that?
I dont. I could make some guesses... look at shcematics, try to understand what components are involved, what fuctions exist; read teh E70 tech docs on line, see what they say about shifters and interlocks...maybe take it apart....

Id likely not mess with it until (a) it failed or (b) wife put her foot down.

Don't fix what ain't broke, lest one fix until broke.
