The shift knob is glued and pressed on, the best way to remove it intact is to heat the knob with a heat gun and pull straight up with a lot of force, please be very careful because when the knob finally releases there is very good chance that you can hit yourself in the face, if the knob is not to be used again you cut a **** up the side with a dremal tool,

I have a '89 Ford Ranger with a 5 speed manual transmission. What is the easiest way to put the shifter back in? It is a Mazda tranny.

If you look down in the top of the transmission where the shifter goes. You will see three parts. These parts are forks. There is a center slot in all three. The slots have to be lined up and in the center. This is neutral. Then the shifter can be installed.

If you are luckey it may just be a broken shifter or shift fork.. either requires removing the trans.. This is a T5 trans parts are available for it but sometimes its cheaper to find a used trans than buy the parts. First thing.. remove the shifter and see if you can see anything wrong. you failed to tell us how this happened ?

You are right. They usually put locktight on at the factory. take care not to break it, but it is hard not to. Try a rag around the knob and a good set of vise grips or channel locks. Good Luck

5 speed trans. hung in 4th gear

Can;t be sure on this one except to tell you that you may have a bent or broken shift fork in the tranny. The only way to find out is to remove the shifter from the top of the tranny and see if you can see the fork and move it in and out of gear. If not the next step is to remove the tranny and take it apart. With the information you gave that is about all I can help you with unless there is more info you can give to me.
