Hi, actually I just did this on my 98 Aurora today. I didn't know how either until today. There is a slot in the side of the leather that faces the radio. I first thought That you must have to depress a tab or something while pulling up on the handle, Not So. I searched thelast night looking for an answer and the only thing I could find was how to replace a standard GM knob with a Hurst and it mentioned something about pulling out a retaining clip. I called 3 different GM dealers today and the first 2 gave me the classic "our mechanics are all busy right now" kind of crap (I'll never take my car to them now) Thank You. The third however told me right away that if it was like their Pontiacs, that there indeed is a small retaining clip inside the same slot I mentioned above. To remove this clip, simply take a small blade straight screwdriver (about 1/8th inch wide) and gently dig around in the upper part of that slot I mentioned, until you get a corner of the screwdriver underneath the end of the clip and gently pry it out. The Shift lever will pop right off. It's even easier than it sounds. This clip I would describe as a 'U' shape with back (or the bottom, or the closed part) of the 'U' facing the radio. Remember, you can of course move the shifter around (even into Low) in order to give yourself better access. Of course this 'U' shaped clip sits horizontally around the shifter shaft which is approx 7/16th" OD. WARNING: If the car does have the power transmission switch, beware there is a plug that has to be removed from the handle provding the car has the switch. This plug is a bit of a bear to remove. It has (at least mine did) a removable clip on one side that is harder to put back in upon re-assembly than it is to remove during dis-assembly. Also there is a clip on the other side of the plug. The same small screwdriver that I used to remove the retaining clip for the lever is what I used to get this plug loose. You kind of have to slide the gray (removable clip back partially into the socket before attempting to re-insert the plug. Just play arount with it and I'm sure you'll figure out a way. I sure . I was able to replace my complete center console today (cup holders included) as a result of finding out about the retaining clip. Good Luck, Jim
to remove the front plugs, first remove the plastic cover that is next to the small heat sink. then remove the next plastic panel. the plugs have no wires, but have boots around them. the first 3 are forward facing and are relatively easy to remove. the other 3 are in the rear and are significantly more difficult to access. Then use a plug wrench to remove plugs and replace with new plugs.
You have to take off the plastic shrouds in the inside of the wheel wells. There are about 4-5 plastic "push-in" screws (or snaps) that you have to pop out, then remove the shroud, and when you look into the wheel well you will be able to see the marker lights. Pop out the bulbs and replace but be careful because often times the bulbs have shattered and you'll cut yourself. Good luck.
1. Remove plastic cover around trunk latch. There are two plastic knobs on each side that you have to remove first; which are used to hold the trunk net in place. Then pull the plastic cover up and forward from body of trunk. 2. Take deep dish ratchet or pliers to remove the three nuts holding tail light assembly in place. Push whole tail light out and then remove appropriate bulb and replace with same. 3. Check that tail light and all other bulbs are working correctly before reassembling tail light unit. Good Luck!
