Step 1 : Remove shift knob, shift boot, and reverse lock out. To do this unscrew shiftknob counter clockwise, push the edges of shift boot together to release it from the clips start at the bottom as its easier, Then pull shift boot up along with the reverse lockout.
Step 2 : Remove the U-shaped piece surrounding the shifter. To do you must pull up or use plastic pry to lift the bottom left hand corner and work your way up the left side, yes the clips are extremely difficult to release but don't be afraid to use force. Once the left side is popped off start going up the right side. The last clip at the top of the ride side is horizontal so pulling back the the rest will not work.
Step 3 : Removal of the Air Bag light and retainer. Pull or pry downward on the airbag light right above the hvac controls. It feels like you are going to break it but you have to use force as every plastic clip is made to hold back the Hulk. Once light is removed and unplugged. Insert your pry tool into the crack between your radio and the piece the airbag light attaches to, this piece to rather super difficult to remove. Dont worry your almost there.
Step 4 : Removal of shifter trim and hvac controls.
Once you get the piece off that retains the airbag light you will now have all the screws exposed. Take out the three screws to remove the whole unit. Once screws are out lift upwards. You can disconnect the electrical plugs but not necessary. Once you have pulled the unit off you now have access to remove your shifter assembly.
Step 5 : Remove the shift cables by prying them off of the shifter assembly, a simple flat head can be used to achieve this. Once removed pull the cable towards you and pull the cable out of the c clamps holding them onto the shifter assembly. Them remove the four 8mm bolts holding the shifter assembly in and your done.
