Hopefully your shifter is OK. Before replacing the cable on one of my Concordes (I've replaced it on both), I drove it for a while with it partially binding. While it didn't ever totally sieze, and I never forced it, the extra force required to move it did cause the pivot pin at the bottom of the shifter to eventually break, so I ended up also having to replace the shifter. Just saying that to encourage you to inspect the operation of the shifter (make sure the shifter isn't wobbly) before you put the bezel back on.
You know how to adjust the cable? See FSM - very easy to do.
