Pull back the carpet around the shifter, take out the screws holding the rubber boot on. Pull the boot up and there should be four bolts. Take them out and then pull up on the shifter.

How do you change gear shift knob on 1979 trans am?

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.
