To remove the shifter handle you have to give the handle a good pull upwards. To put it back, give it a good smack down. The handle just snaps in place.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the coolant reserve tank and disengage the three electrical connectors from the PCM.
  3. Remove the three PCM mounting bolts and carefully remove the PCM.
  4. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Dual gate Hurst shifter adjustment


Hello! Here is what I was able to track down:

Removing & Replacing The Hurst Dual/Gate
1. Disconnect car battery.

2. Remove Knob. Remove four Phillips head screws that hold escutcheon plate down to console.
NOTE: SHORT SCREW IS USED IN REAR RIGHT - HAND HOLE. Remove escutcheon plate and console from floor tunnel.

3. Lift selector indicator lamp housing out of shifter and pull bulb socket out of lamp housing. Disconnect wire connectors from combination Back - up light / Neutral safety switch.

4. Remove two 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex-head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to rear mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex - head cap screw that holds cable bracket to shifter frame. Remove two #10 - 32 x 3/8 slotted head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to front bracket. Free shifter from cable by removing cotter pin and washer.

5. Remove combination Neutral - safety / and Back - up light switch. Install switch on Replacement unit.

6. Install replacement shifter unit in reverse order of removal of original unit.

7. ADJUST CABLE: SEE FIGURE 1 (Below)
Loosen nut that fastens cable pin to transmission control arm. Loosen nut enough to allow pin to slide in the slot in the arm. Turn the arm to NEUTRAL position. Move the stick to NEUTRAL. Tighten the adjusting nut. Test movement of stick and check to be sure that stick positions agree with transmission control operation.

8. SEE FIGURE 2 (Below)
Connect car battery. Apply hand brake. Move stick to NEUTR AL position. Press foot on brake pedal. Start engine. If starter fails to operate, Neutral Safety switch must be adjusted. Adjustment is made with a long-bladed Phillips screwdriver through the "Street" gate. This screw is directly in front of the st ick. Turn the screw about 1/2 turn past the point where starter operates. (STICK MUST REMAIN IN "NEUTRAL" WHILE ADJUSTMENT IS MADE). Starter should operate ONLY when stick is in PARK or NEUTRAL position.

Shifter knob removal


If it's a stickshift, many come off by prying out the shift pattern plate on top, there is a nut underneath. Best done when it's warm...colder it is the harder it is to remove. (use small screwdriver and pry up)

1984 CJ7 stuck in reverse. Staight 6, 5 speed and will not shift out of reverse.


you have a bent shift fork or shaft, you will need to remove the dust boot pull the shift snap ring it the shifter is in the floor and pull the shifter stick off then remove the transmisson top cover and replace the reverse first shift fork, this is the most common cause, if it has a columm shifter then disconnet the shifter lever and try shifting if it shifts then you have bent linkage and will need to figure out where it is located.

Back hatch wont open on 96 Jeep GC


if it's still stuck as of today look under the rear bumper in the center,WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR and with a flashlite high up in there you will see a couple of studs with nuts. using a extension and i believe a 13mm socket loosen but do not remove both nuts. pull on the door a couple of times to free it up and then retighten both nuts. now try the door slowly and it worked for me.you will most likely have too repeat this until it operates freely and closes tightly [to keep the elements out].it is not labor intensive and it's worked on my 96 gc twice. best and luck and let the rest of us know how you came out. jeepinjiminy

96 grand jeep cherokee is jammed into park


the simple fix might be the park interlock cable. this locks the shifter unless you press and hold the brake pedal while selecting gears. I've seen and replaced a few of these on several chrysler/dodge vehicles.
