I assume that you have the "cobra head" type shifter.
There should be a small horizontal slot at towards the base of the front side of the shifter. In there is a clip you need to remove. From what I hear a screwdriver and/or a pair of needel nose plyers works well. Once the clip is out just pull up on the shifter and it will come off.
I don't have the 'Cobra Head" shifter though. It'* the bigger one with the button on the left side. Does it come off the same way? Thanks.
So you have the "T" style then. So here is what you'll need. Get a Sawzal, propane torch, and some duct tape... j/k I am guessing it will be real similar to the "Cobra head" shifters but maybe someone who has a "T" style can jump in to verify. Do you have that slit in the leather on the front side of yours?
My car'* parked down the street, so I'll definitely check that tomorrow morning. Thanks. Until then maybe someone with the same shifter will reply. I'm guessing it has to be pretty similar.
I guess the 'cobra head' was used from 95 on. I like it better actually. There'* a '96 "abandoned" Bonne in a parking lot near my house. I'll prob "steal" it and replace it with mine They'll never know
my T handle came off with a clip near the bottom as was already described, once you have it off thats a good time to scrub it out. it may not be for the faint of heart, but i completly disassembled mine and cleaned all the years of nasty hands out of it.
I wouldn't have thought that it could get so dirty. It'll be interesting to see what I find. Whenever I take stuff apart, I'm tempted to clean it. When I took out my back seat when I had a leak last year...
