a) Check gear oil level/condition. b) or you have a worn synchronizer. Verify that your clutch linkage is adjusted, if this is a cable linkage vehicle. Hydraulic units are not suppose to be adjustable. Your difficulty with getting the vehicle into first gear could be a result of the throw-out fork not fully releasing the clutch disk; hence the above suggestion to verify that the clutch mechanism is adjusted properly for full travel of the throw-out fork.

How do you change a bulb in Pontiac grand am gear shift indicator?

I have a 94 Pontiac Grand AM SE and replacing the bulb on gear shift is difficult. The whole panel that the gear shift sits on can be remove. First pull the pin out from the shift knob its located in the front of the knob just above the metal rod it sits on. Then pull out the knob. After that just pry out the panel carefully at the sides, starting from the cigarette lighter up to where the switch is to adjust the mirror. Disconnect the wire from the cigarette lighter, gear shift and the switch that adjust the mirrors. The bulb is on a circuit that is one with the gear shift indicators.
