I have a 2005 Aztec, the shifter has a "u" shaped pin located on the front towards the dash if you use a small screw driver you can loosen the pin enough, then use a small pair of plyer to put it out. The shifter will then pull up. Hint. With your foot on the brake...put shifter in low gear to create more space to access this pin

The switch is located inside of the frame, underneath the panel where the shift lever comes up. Remove the knob on the shift lever and remove 2 screws, and remove the plate. The switch is mounted below the Deck Lowering Lever.

my Trans was stuck in park and I could turn and remove key snd turn steering wheel. There is a hole under the ignition switch that may have a plug in it. Stick something through and you should feel it push a tentioned lever up. with your other hand see if you can now push in the shifter button and move it. I did this while my '04 was running and it allowed me to shift.

Depending on the model they are usually located on the transmission. Just below the shift linkage and cable. Follow the shift cable to the transmission and you will find it. you will have to remove the shift cable and lever , then unbolt the switch and work it up off the shaft.

Please be aware that for 1979 - 1981 Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am models no unique service manuals were created. Instead, model year-specific supplement manuals were printed, which detailed new data specific to their respective model years. In other words, because the shift knob assemblies from 1979 - 1981 models were no different from the 1978 model year, the 1979 supplement manual refers the user to the 1978 service manual. This is why the "7B-21_pic" service manual image says it's from the "1978 PONTIAC SERVICE MANUAL". automatic transmission SHIFT CONTROL LEVER - R & R (Fig. 7B-23) 1.
