Generally, if the button on the shifter does not go in, there is a build-up of dirt and debris in the mechanism causing it not to move. A good amount of WD-40 or other lubricant usually helps the problem. If not, there is a good chance that the connector pin in the mechanism is either popped out or broken.

How do you remove console 2001 Honda accord V6 automatic?

Begin by locating a vertical panel on the back side of the console. Use a flat bladed screwdriver to carefully prey it off. You will see two 10mm bolts to loosen and remove. Carefully remove the cupholder and locate a 12mm bolt. Remove it. remove the screws on both sides of the shifter, and remove it. Don't lose the button or spring in the shifter. Also, be sure the small pieces that sit on top of your shifter shaft don't fall off. Find something to rest these pieces on because they are covered in lubricant. There are two more bolts, I think, but I'm still looking for them. That's how I found this site! They seem to be closer to the radio, perhaps beneath the shifter.

How do you remove the floor shift knob on a 1994 Ford Ranger 2X4 pickup manual transmission?

Easy. The cap on top of the knob - with the gear arrangements on it (1,2,3,4,5,R) will pop off if you pry under it. There should be a machine screw holding the knob onto the shaft of the shifter - unscrew it, and since the knob is splined, pull the knob straight up and off. It might take a little forcing. That's all there is to it! -if you are also trying to remove the entire shifter (shaft) there is one screw at the bottom of the shaft right next to the transmission that must come out, then the shaft slides right up and off. i had to do this when dropping the tranny, in order to replace my clutch.
