NOTE: Applies to the 5-speed manual transmission ONLY.

The knob is simply an interference fit, pushed on. So it just pulls off. There are many approaches, but to avoid banging yourself in the head (or elsewhere), here's what to do.

Sit in the driver's seat. Put the shifter in neutral or second gear. "Lace" the fingers of both hands under the knob. Pull upward with all your might. Use your entire back (optionally, pivot your body at the waist), as if you're pulling a weed or pull-starting a lawn mower engine, for the most leverage. The knob will just pull off.

You may need to use a "set screw" on the side of the knob to keep an aftermarket knob in place.

If it's a stock transmission, the shift linkage is mechanical.

Have you kept up on the filter and fluid changes? Is the fluid low?

The timing on a Saturn engine is fixed - you must line up the TDC marks when you change timing chains. Any variations in spark timing are controlled by the computer.

Turn the knob counter clockwise to remove it and clockwise to replace it. The "boot" is more then likely attached to the console that surrounds the shift lever.

There are a couple of reasons why a 1993 Mercury Villager is hard to shift. One reason could be a gear shift cable. Another reason could be low transmission fluid.

Just bring it to the place that you bought the bulb, and they will show you. Buy the bulb at an auto shop.

More than likely worn fingers on the pressure plate. Hydaulics diagnosis is needed to make sure that is not the issue though. see saturnfans.com for instructions to do this
