SOURCE: Gear shift knob

The shifter knobs on these vehicles is installed very very tightly.

I have never been able to remove one without ruining it by tearing the cover, which should not be a big issue since you're replacing it.

The knob threads on like a nut would (lefty-loosy, righty-tighty). I use a large set of channel-lock pliers and they are still tough to break loose.

Good luck and I hope that this is helpful!

SOURCE: gear shift knob

Usually there is a small metal clip at the bottom front of the shift knob (looks like a staple.) Just pull it out and pull the knob straight up.

SOURCE: changing the gear shift knob on the G5?

I had this problem for months i wanted a new one that looked better. Here is what i did to remove it. First i went by where the boot ends on the shifter. If you notice it looks like a separate part than the shifter shaft. Take the bottom part that looks different and squeeze then turn counter-clockwise. After just a small turn, not even 45 degrees, pull down and it should reveal the metal and four plastic clips that are holding down the shaft. I then tried to remove this but could not so i did as the original post and removed the top with the gears on it and as i was pulling up on this, the whole thing came off revealing just the metal shaft. The plastic clips at the bottom were just there to help hold the knob from coming off. I hope this is helped some

SOURCE: rear liscese plate bulbs on 05 cadillac srx

First you have to take out the one and only screw in the rear hatch door - it's where the hand pull down is you use to close the hatch.
Then you have to pop all the plastic clips all the way around the plastic door panel, trying not to pull them out from the frame . If you do pull out the white plastic plugs from the frame you better make certain you take them off the plastic housing and insert them back into their frame holes - or you will never get the housing back on.

Once you have the housing loose disconnect the inside tail gate light wire to remove the whole thing. Then you have to remove 7 to 8 nuts from the back of entire License plate, back up bulb housing using a deep socket to get in there. Work it loose from the rear of the car and it will come out just enough to work on the lights.
This is tricky since the screw mounts don't give you much room to work with.

Once you have the license plate and back up bulb frame loose you will see the two housings for the license plate bulbs on top.

Slide out the license plate bulb lens and twist the bulb connection to remove the bulbs.
Replace both of them - you don't want to do this again in a month when the other one blows.

OPTIONAL:
Once you take out the bulbs you might see that the housing is melted where the bulb wanted to burn through. Drill two small holes one is each end of the housing before I put everything back together to release some of the heat.


Reverse the whole process to put everything back together. It's not easy.
Make sure you insert the cables through the opening for the hatch handle or it will kink and not work properly.

The bulbs come in a two pack of cost $4.95 .

How to remove Cadillac srx center console


Open the lid fully, you should see small hold down bolt heads, maybe 7 mm...these must come completely out, be sure to label as length etc is important. There are also 2 front connectors to the lower dash, but depending on your need to remove, you may not need to remove these...you probably need to remove the gear shift knob to raise the console...look directly under the knob...sometimes a small pull out clip to release the knob, sometimes a allen head screw to release...hope this helps.

2005 Impala gear shift button popped out. I have to put it back in each time I need to shift to D, R, etc. How can I remedy this problem without replacing the whole gearshift?


Re-attaching the knob to the gearshift is the key...Look for a hole on the lower section of the knob...if you cannot see it...remove the bottom chrome piece from the knob, (pry apart carefully not to scratch the chrome housing...you should see the small hole normally includes a small allen insert screw or Phillips screw...must be screwed in to the gear shift shaft to hold in place...if you cannot compare...visit a local salvage yard to experiment..."Pic A Part" is a national self help salvage yard. Hope this helps. If the button does not stay in the gear shift knob...you can replace the knob (with button) only...remove the knob as described above. Hope this helps.

How to replace gear shift indicatoc lamp on 2005 pontiac grand prix


You need to first remove the shift knob...with the car off, turn to on...not start, and pull the shift lever down to engage the low gear...then look on the backside of the knob for the removal clip, or screw...if yours has the u clip, you need to pull this out...(needle nose pliers) and remove...(or unscrew the small screw if equipped) You can now lift the knob straight up and off...you then need to remove the screws that hold down the center console...on the inside of the console, at the bottom...this will allow you to view and remove the indicator bulb...be sure to match the bulb exactly...some are bulb # 124...Switch out the bulb and reassemble...the u clip or screw must be back in place as the last step to re-attach the knob...Hope this helps.

I took my 2003 pontiac grand am to get a paint job. They broke my gear shift knob. In order for me to go into gear I had to put the broken gear shift knob in. Then I took it to wal-mart for an oil...


Contact an automotive recycler (junkyard) to see if they will sell you one. Often you can buy one that fits (but looks different) from an auto parts store like AutoZone or Checker.
