Default How To Remove Shift **** in Auto.

How do you remove the shift **** in a 96 automatic trans cherokee?
I need to remove the so i can slide the shifter bezel piece off to replace since the light bulb decided to melt its socket in the shifter bezel and a few of the slides.

x3. It does not seem like that's how it comes out, but that's how it comes out. Pull as hard as you can upward, w/both hands.

This may seem strange, but when I couldn't get mine off I put tooth picks under as many of the little teeth that hold it in as I could and was able to pull it off with a little more ease.

Get a long pry bar or cheater pipe. Brace the lower end on the console, using a block of wood like a piece of 2x4 to protect the console plastic and to spread the load a little.

Put the pry/cheater bar under one side of the "T" and pull up smartly.

For even better leverage, you might want to sit in the middle of the back seat.

That "T" handle will fly off and land about 20 feet away!

In the JY, i just take a hammer to them from underneath.

They don't break!
