Why does the shifter stick?

You have to have your foot on the brake pedal to release the car from Park. The brake pedal switch sends a signal to release the safety lock. The shifter is adjusted to mesh with this safety lock. The switch may be broken or out of alignment and that is why the safety lock is binding. Sometimes the switch is broken or out of alignment that your brakelights will not work. Check them.

Someone needs to find out why stuff is binding.

I have a passat 2006 fsi. The Parking breaks wont release after pressing the release button

I had the same problem on my Passat Variant 2007.
Randomly Park Brake won't activate and/or deactivate once button PB pressed.
The cockpit computer tells "Park Brake Error" (or something similar).
If this is your problem, the issue is very well known to VW Service centers.
I had solved it by bringing the car to the Service: The told me that they substituted the ParkBrake Button (a differently made one, even if identical on the exterior) and Reprogramming (Updating) the car computer software.

Gear Lever stuck in park??

this is because there is a switch on the brake pedal that is connected to a solinoid that lock the gear selector in park .
you need to A : check the switch on the brake pedal is working this may only need to adjust the distance between the pedal stop and the pedal its self.
B: The solinoid on the gearbox should click when the switch on the brake pedal is closed or opened
if not the solinoid on the gear box could be sticking or could be faulty

hope this helps
