Do you want to replace just the lever or the shift lever control? If it is just the lever pull the rubber cover back away from the column and you should see a pin or a screw that runs through the middle of the shifter column. Get a small punch and punch the pin out, or if it is a screw just screw it out of the column. It will probably be a star drive screw. Hope this helps.

The shift level is locked by the shift solenoid. When you step on the brake, the brake switch sends power to the shift solenoid and it moves a lever to unlock the shifter. If either the switch or solenoid is bad, you can't shift out of park.

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.

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. Release shift control lever by inserting a thin rule or a piece of .015" - .020" shim stock into socket along side base of shift control lever on driver's side. 2. Insert rule or stock to depth of at least one inch to unlock its bayonet retainer and lift control lever and tool up out of shift socket. 3. Install shift control lever by inserting into shift socket. Bayonet retainer will lock control lever automatically into proper position. manual transmission SHIFT CONTROL ASSEMBLY - REPAIR (Fig. 7B-21) 1. Remove shift lever shaft retainer and shaft from control lever housing. Then, remove shift control lever assembly from control lever housing. 2. Note position of spacers in relation to shift levers and remove spacers and shift levers from control lever housing. 3. Remove spring bracket and spring from shift control lever assembly. 4. Remove retainer and control lever pivot pin from shift control lever assembly and separate control lever bracket from shift control lever. 5. Clean and inspect all components. Replace all worn, cracked or broken parts as necessary. NOTE: If necessary to remove reverse lever adjusting screw, grind or chisel off the weld and remove screw from control lever bracket. 6. If adjusting screw were removed, position shift control lever bracket and install pivot pin and retainer. Install reverse lever adjusting screw but do not weld at this time. NOTE: Lubricate all levers and spacers with water repellant-type of lubricant such as lubriplate or equivalent. 7. Install shift levers and spacers in control lever housing. 8. Install spring bracket and spring in control lever bracket and shift control lever assembly into control lever housing, making sure lever engages shift levers. 9. Install shift lever shaft and retainer. 10. If removed, adjust reverse lever adjusting screw as follows: a. Position shift control lever in 1st-2nd shift lever and touching interlock plate spacer between 1st-2nd and reverse shift levers. b. Hold reverse selector rod agains the adjusting screw, tightening screw to eliminate any contact of the control finger as it travels across neutral gate of interlock plate spacer. c. Weld screw securely in place. http://hotfile.com/dl/26587081/fa5f595/7B-23_words_and_pic.jpg.html http://hotfile.com/dl/26586993/c9e8897/7B-21_pic.jpg.html http://hotfile.com/dl/26587044/b143eef/7B-21_words.jpg.html

You cannot you will need to replace the gear shift cables (there are two) because they are stretched. You can check under the lever inside the car to see if the linkage has some-how become loose.

I have had the same problem with my 2002 Buell Blast, where when you shift to first, or down shift at all, the shift lever comes loose and just hangs. What I did to fix this, is loosen the hex-nut and bolt that go through the shift lever, and remove the shift lever itself. What is probably happening is oil is seeping in between the shift lever openining and the primary. Clean the openinig on the shift lever, and the spool it attaches to. If the hex-bolt is in poor condition, pick up a new one, or if it's in alright condition (not stripped) clean it. Simply set the shift lever where you want it, and retighten the hex-bolt. Tighten it a fair bit, using a lever to get extra leverage on it. Buells are notorious for leaking oil, so start with that. Worked for me...

If it is a manual trans.take the screws out holding the shift lever boot on. Slide the boot up the gearshift. there will be a bolt holding the lever on, take that out and pull on the lever. you may have to get a little rough with the lever to get it to come off once the bolt is out.

Hold shift and then right-click with the lever to place it without interacting with the chest.

There are five steps on how to change a column shift lever in a 1962 Ford Falcon. Some of the step-by-step instructions are pry the clam shell off with the trim tool in order to expose the shift lever assembly, and then set the clam shell aside.

Remove the bolt in the lever perch. For a clutch lever, loosen the cable enough to remove the broken lever and replace the new one. Adjust the clutch cable back and replace the bolt in perch. For the brake (disc brake)) lever, you simply remove the bolt and replace lever, put the bolt back in the perch and you're done. If you have drum brakes, it is the same as the clutch lever routine.

You may want to check your shifter cables to see if they are operating correctly. Turn on the igniton(but DO NOT start) and have someone shift the car, You'll need to have the hood open and watch the shift lever on top of the trans-axle. If it moves while your helper shifts then you might need to get your transaxle rebuilt if it barely moves or doesn't move at all then you need to replace the cables.
