SOURCE: 92 Miata transmission shift boot replacement

The lower shifter boot is attached to the transmission by 3 10mm bolts. You will need to remove to center consoule and the upper shift boot that attaches to the car to be able to remove the lower boot. Then you can replace the lower boot.

SOURCE: crankshaft position sensor replaced and car shuts off

Hello, The crankshaft sensor is located at the left rear of the motor, behind the left cylinder head where the transmission bolts up. I believe that it has a 6mm allen head screw holding it down.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2004 mercedes c240 alarm sounds for no apparent reason

Hi, You need to replace the alarm siren. It is also a module. It is located in the right front fender well. The reason they go bad is because they are located in a place where they get wet.

How to get trans out park when stuck


Chrysler doesn\'t sell this part alone, they sell the whole Shifter Box for over 200 dollars. Autozone sells this piece(park lockout mechanism) and its made from metal, I replaced it on my daughters 300 a few months ago

Procedure is as follows: Just stick a long screwdriver through the square hole just above the shift gear knob, not where the rubber surround is but above that after you take off the silver chrome plate surrounding the shift knob of course. line the screw driver up with the little cable you will see down in there about 3 inches push that to the left and pull your shifter knob to the right YOU NEED TO HAVE YOUR FOOT ON THE BREAK while you do this, if it doesn\'t work its because the spring that is attached snapped the hook off the pink plastic part, try the following

1 Break down that center console!, if you need to move the car immediately to get home or to your garage or shop then its not a problem if you have a few tools, start popping the trim off the shifter assy, pull up and out on the small storage compartment to the right of the shifter, this will uncover a small pink lever (which will get you at least on the road but may not work if this is broken , it was on my daughters car), if it is you need to go deeper! Take out the rubber mat directly under the ash tray and cigarette lighter, this will expose two philips head screws, undo them, move through trim with a flathead and keep prying trim off until you have the shifter assy visible, if your shift knob is giving you problems, try sliding the very bottom chrome plastic trim down then the knob up as you spread the white plastic at the base of the leather.

2 Ok your down to the shifter, now with the key in and the car running press and hold the pink lever on the right side of the shifter, there is also second pink part( this is the cheap piece of junk that has you doing what your doing) on the front of the shifter assy, press this pink part as well and as always with your foot on the brake try to shift, you should be in good shape, now to limp back to your proper repair facility of choice (your house) Shift into drive and only reverse if you need to, when you park leave in neutral and hit the parking brake,

4X4 gear shifter pulled off


It is held on underneath with 2 small 8mm head bolts. They probably rotted and broke off.. You will have to remove the 2 bolts and the big bolt on the side of the transfer case and remove the whole bracket if they are broke off. Only 1 might be broke because I believe the bottom hole on the shifter is slotted and the top one has the hole. Either way you will have to look at it from underneath. Hope this helps. Cobra..

I HAVE A 2005 LINCOLN NAVIGATOR AND THE SHIFTER IS STUCK IT DONT MOVE


The neutral safety switch might need adjusting. That is what makes it necessary to press the brake pedal before you can shift out of park. it is also possible that something broke inside the shifter. Many parts are made of plastic and it isn't just Ford products that are having this problem.

Chrysler 300 won't shift out of park


I had the same problem with my 05. I couldn't shift out of park. So, I checked brake pedal sensor, and wire linkage and they were fine. I took the center console apart and pulled out the shifter assembly and sure enough the problem was at the assembly. There is a plastic piece. that hooks to a small spring that snapped. I ened up renforcing it with a small clamp hose, and ever since its been functioning fine. I imagine I saved my over $500 bucks of repair cost and also wouldn't be surprize for others to have the same problem.

Removing an automatic gear shift out of a sc400


position the shifter into the drive position, pull down on the plastic trim directly underneath the leather portion of the shifter. theres two phillips head screws behind that. remove the shifter knob and the plastic piece. the trim will pop out if you pull directly upwards, disconnect the heated seats(if you have them) and the trac button. hope that helps.

Saturn LS1 2000 - driver side window locked down unable to close.


It's the switch.
Put your fingers into the leather shifter boot at the base and feel under the rim to pop the outside ring that holds the faux wood trim at the base of the boot up and out. (The piece is faux wood on an LS2, it may just be colored plastic on an LS1) You may need to do this twice, on each side of the boot, so that the entire piece of trim and the boot pops up and out. The leather boot should still be connected to the trim, it will pop out as a unit.
Once it is out, you can reach into the housing and feel the window switch unit from inside the housing. There is a spring clip on the upper and lower ends of the switch unit, press in the spring clip and pop it up one end at a time. The unit is now out but still attached to the power. I have never unclipped the wire harness but it looks easily doable.
IF YOU ARE REMOVING THIS BECAUSE THE SWITCH IS STICKY you probably DON'T need a new switch - you can spray some contact cleaner in the ports at the side of the unit and underneath the switch, this will probably fix your problem, at least if you have ever spilled a soda anywhere near the switch.

I ALWAYS DETECT GAS FUMES IN MY 1992 MIATA.


Remove the center consule. Underneath the leather boot around the shifter lever is a rubber boot sealing the shifter lever to the tunnel. This prevents road dust, water, and fumes, etc. from entering the cockpit. Under this rubber boot is another rubber boot sealing the shifter lever to the transmission. It is possible one or both rubber boots are ruptured. Should replace both anyway, if one is. I assume you have a manual transmission.

To remove the radio: Remove the ashtray by raising the armrest cover and removing the two screws at the rear of the ashtray. Slide the ashtray back and then lift it out. Be careful of the two front tabs, as you don't want to break them. Reach below the wood console, where the ashtray front tabs were inserted. Loosen and remove the two wing nuts. With a small, long flat bladed screwdriver, pry out the leather shifter surround. The leather shifter surround has a center chrome retaining ring, the leather surround, and then finally a black plastic surround. The chrome retaining ring has 3-4 tabs which are locked in below the leather surround. It depends on the year of the Jaguar. Probably the 95 has three, but maybe four. They should be at the front and rear of the trim piece (2 front and 1 back, or 2 front and two back) but I've seen then on the sides. The point is, you have to be careful with the screwdriver and find the tabs. The screwdriver should be slid between the leather and the retainer. Pull upwards on the retainer gently, and as you loosen the tabs, it will come out. Remove the leather surround. Once the chrome retainer has been removed, it should be easy to work it out of the console. Loosen the black trim ring gently as it has tabs as well, but they are visible once the leather trim has been removed. Lift it upwards out of the wood trim and pull it to the side out of the way. You don't need to disconnect the wires, just lay the black trim to the side. Lift the rear of the wood console trim and gently, gently slide it back and up. It will try to hang on the leather console, and can be difficult. Patience is important, as the walnut on the ski slope cracks easy (really easy). Once the wood console trim (ski slope) is removed, you should have a row of screws up the side of the center control panel, where the radio and AC controls are. There are four to six on each side, depending on what Jaguar used at the time, as the 95 cars mechanically are somewhat of a blend of the XJ40 and the XJ300. Remove these screws, and note any spacers that were behind them. These spacers get lost quickly, and cause the ski slope to sit awkwardly on the console. The radio will slide forwards once these screws are removed. Remove the radio harness and the antenna lead. As the books say, assembly is reverse of removal.
