I'm not 100% sure about this because I own a 1993 Saturn SC2, and it's a standard, but hey, my 2 cents might help you. My girlfriend owns an automatic car (Pontiac Sunbird) and she had to remove the shift knob in it. If the shifter knobs are the same (as in the way to remove them) then if you look (or feel, kinda hard to look) then you should be able to remove it. Heres what to do: put your car in park, then somewhere in from of the shifter (the end closest to the dash) below where you put your fingers you should feel something like a staple (looks like a giant staple when its rewmoved) it should be maybe 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch below where your fingers would normally rest when shifting. You need to remove the staple-looking object and then you just pull upwards on the shift knob and it will come off. To remove the staple-looking object, its easiest to put the car in the lowest gear, so the shifter is all the way back and you have more room, but don't forget to apply the e-brake so you don't go anywhere, then take a flathead screw-driver and pry off the staple-looking thing (probably NOT the correct way to do things, but it got the job done for me) Once taken off DO NOT lose the giant staple because you will need to replace it when you put the shift knob back on. I you, if you have any questions that I can try to explain further, leave a note in my guestbook at my Saturn page at I'll be glad to help you as much as possible.

The Neutral safety switch is located on the back of the automatic transmission. it is quite simple to replace. It is probably easier to replace from under the vehicle, but it is accessable from the top if your vehicle is not equipped with ABS.

I have a 1998 Jimmy SLT, automatic with floor shifter. It is easier than you might think. If you look closely on the back of the shifter knob there is a retaining pin, looks like a large brad type nail, just pry it out and lift up.
