button on shift knob
« on: November 13, 2006, 05:40:16 PM »
I have a 1975 Firebird Formula. Want to replace console between seats. However I need to remove the shift knob first. Can someone tell me how I can remove the auto  gearshift knob button that is pushed to shift into gear.   I've tried prying the button out but didn't work. Should it just pop out?

Yes, the button should just pop out.  There is a metal clip under the button that holds it on, but it is just hel there by pressure.  Once you remove that button, there is a "C" Clip under that which holds the actual knob on there.  You have to remove that and then you should be good to go.

Would that be the same way to remove my 85 z28 auto shifter?

it should be the same, but I have never taken apart a Camaro console.
