Default How to: Remove the automatic shift knob

Tools need:

A flathead screwdriver, putty knife, utility knife or any tool with a flat tip.


1) To begin, apply the emergency break and move the shifter into neutral or drive. (the key must be turned to the "on" position but engine not running)


2) Next turn the bottom chrome piece of the shift a little less than 1/8 of a turn.



3) Insert a flathead screw driver, putty knife or whatever thin bladed tool you have between the bottom chrome piece and the rubber center portion.



4) wiggle the tool up and down to seperate the bottom chrome piece. It should pop off, if it does not try turning the bottom chrome piece the other way and try again.



5) grasp the shift knob with both hands and pull straight up. Be careful not to have your face above the shift knob during this step as the shift knob is a bit tight and you might end up knocking yourself out.

To install:

Slide the bottom chrome piece, then the shift knob over the shifter shaft and rotate until the flat parts of the shaft fit into the groves up in the top part of the shift knob. You should feel it sink down a little.

While pressing down on the shift knob, push up on the bottom chrome piece.

When fully seated turn the bottom chrome piece about 1/8 of a turn and your done.

I would love to find a cool replacement of my auto shift knob, but there's only one I can find that supports the OD button. I'm getting ready to make one myself.

Pictures are gone but what about other vehicles that use a button on the shifter? I can think of a few right now and I have one in my possession

I have those siting around. The button turns on/off for performance shift tables.
