First you need to take off the molding around the top of the radio (use a screw drive and it will pop off). You will notice that this will take the "top-half" half off of the trim. Second there are two screws under the center console arm rest. Take those out and you be able to pop the rest of the trim to get to the light bulb installed.

There is another way. You do not have to take the molding off the top of the radio. Put your flat blade screw driver under the lip of the console. You can see the space where it meets the top moulding. Lift the armrest cover. At the front you will see two screws. Remove them, then Gently pry up top of shifter console. Put brake on and shift into the center of the console. Remove the top of the console being careful of the two attached wires underneath. In my case, all I did was throughly clean the top with the shifter symbols and the underneath. It was dirty. I did not attempt to remove lamps. I put everything back to gether, it worked like a charm.

How do you replace the light bulb for the shift indicator on a 2003 Chevy Cavalier?

On the center console you will have to remove four 10mm bolts. 2 bolts are in the bottom of the console compartment that you will see when you open it. One bolt is under the small holder located behind the shift indicator and in front of the console compartment. Lift this square holder out and you will see the bolt.Remove it. The last bolt is at the front of the console under a pry out cap. Use a slot screwdriver to pry out the cap and you will see the last bolt. Remove it. Pull up the e-brake lever and with the engine off and the key on, pull the gear shift lever back. Lift the console enough to get your hand under on the driver side of the console approximately where the middle of the shift indicator is.You will feel a wire. Follow it to where the bulb socket is. Turn on the socket and pull it out. Take out the burned bulb and bring it to your supplier to match it. Replace the bulb and put everything back together. It takes less than 20 minutes to do the whole job. MJB

If everything works correctly, you should be able to push the brake with your foot, then push the button on the shifter and move to the according gear. If the vehicle will still not shift out of park, a brake light switch or shift lock solenoid is most likely the problem. Where is the brake light switch and shift lock solenoid located? it is just underneath the console to the right, there is also a little cap next to the shifter stick a screw driver in there and push the shift-lock solenoid forward, or choice number 2 is to take the console out and unplug the shift-lock
