Removal

Step 2

(You could probably get away with not doing this, but don’t blame me if the airbags go off in your face.)

Step 4

Remove 4 13mm nuts around shifter base. Two in front of the shifter, two in the back.

Step 5

Unclip gear selector cable. This is the cable on the driver’s side of the assembly. Use a flathead screwdriver to get behind it and pry against it until it pops loose.

Step 6

Unclip lockout cable. This is the cable on the passenger side of the assembly. Use the flathead screwdriver to brace the white plastic arm the cable attaches to, then use pliers to push the black connector straight back (opposite direction of the cable) until it pops loose.

Step 7

Release cables from shifter base bracket. Use a flathead screwdriver and/or pliers to squeeze the tabs on either side of the bracket clips.

Step 8

Undo wiring clip. Needlenose pliers work well.

Step 9

Remove Light Bulb from assembly. Just twist and gently pull out.

Step 10

Release wiring harness from underside of assembly. Use a flathead screwdriver to pop the clip loose.

Step 10

Lift the assembly out
