SOURCE: shifter knob removal

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,

SOURCE: Can not remove the shifter knob. Need to replace

Some knobs need to be physically unscrewed while others have tiny little screws at the base that lock the knob into place

SOURCE: 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)

I cant get my car outta park. When i press down the brake and press the knob i feel a clicking in the brake pedal. i cant get my car out of the park positon and need to get work any ideas whats wrong and...


there is a button right beside your shifter that will release the lock underneith the plastic arouns the shifter. remove the plastic rubber around the shifter and lift the plastic up. there will be a button you can press to release the shifter lock in cases of emergency. careful removing the plastic but may require some light prying action to get it off. hit the button with a srewdriver or key and move the shifter out of park. you will still need to be in park or neutral to start the car. the main problem is probably a park/neutral module, a bad shifter, or a brake pedal sensor

Car wont come out of park


First try the override - remove the cup holder liner, stick your finger in the hole and lightly push on the override switch (all in user manual). If this doesn't work you have a small spring that has shot off the cheap plastic hook that holds it in place. Remove the shifter knob (lifts straight up), Unsnap shifter assembly cover (use small screwdriver), remove coin tray thing in front of shifter. Remove PRND panel (again this all just snaps in place (look for tabs)). On the left side of the shifter you should see a pink plastic piece with a cable connected to it. Pull it toward the rear of the vehicle while attempting to put in reverse. The spring is probably shot off or hanging from this pink thing. I drilled a small hole in mine and reattached the spring or new spring if your like me and couldn't find the old one. You will have to remove the four bolts that mount the shifter assembly to replace the spring. About a 1-2 hr job.

The front of the handle has a large "U" clip. Use a screw drive and pry the clip out. It's a lot easier to do when the shifter is pulled all the way back to "1" or "2" but is doable in park still. The handle will then pull up. There will be a plastic piece in it that pushes down to release the lock in the shifter assembly. If when you push the plastic piece down it doesn't release the lock you will have to remove the shifter cover and take a look inside, to see what broke. It may require replacing the whole shifter assembly. You should be able to find the complete assembly used for fairly cheap.

Replacing the broken cup holder


First, you must remove the floor console bezel (the trim piece that surrounds the shifter knob). The proper method to remove this involves removing the shifter knob first. This is held in by a small set screw on the "radio" side of the knob. To remove the screw, you will need a small "hex-key" (also known as Allen key or Allen wrench). The proper size is 3mm, but you can get away with using a size 7/64" if you need to. Once loosened, I believe that the knob pulls right up and off. Make sure you do not lose the small screw. Also be careful not to accidentally contact the tip-top of the shifter while the knob is removed, as this may break off the small black plastic tip, which will require much more work to repair and/or replace the entire shifter.
Next, you should be able to remove the floor console bezel by prying gently and carefully on the corners and sides of the piece with a tool called a trim stick, or if you do not have this tool, you can get away with using a small, thin-tipped flat head screwdriver. However, this will almost surely cause some aesthetic damage to the edges of the trim.
Once this bezel is out of the way, (you shouldn't have to remove the electrical connectors on the underside of the bezel for this specific job) there are 2 screws holding down the bottom of the cupholder assembly. I believe these are both Torx - type screws, which will need either a T10, T15, or T20 screwdriver bit to remove(I'm sorry but I don't remember exactly which of the 3 sizes are used). After these 2 screws are removed, open the armrest. On the TOP of the FRONT of the armrest, just above the cupholders, are 2 more screws which should be the same as the 2 bottom screws. Remove these, then lift the cupholder assembly up and forward to remove it.

To install, simply reverse the above procedure.

Because this is my first solution posted on this site, I would love to have your feedback. Please let me know how everything goes with this project. Thank you!

Ignition not releasing key promptly


First thing to do when it does it next is to wiggle the gear shift knob button out. The tend to break apart at the hinge and stick, this causes the key to not release. Use two fingers and wiggle the button while pushing it out and see if it releases.

If it doesn't the mechanism one the gear shifter itself most likely has coke/coffee on it and is sticking. It is mounted right under the cup holders.

you can try to clean it by removing the center console, but I would take it to a garage to do it. The center console has to be removed and the mechanism that does into the shifter has to be removed and cleaned with contact cleaner. It then has to be re-greased and reinstalled.

I hope this helps

Gear shifter will not go into park


There is a plastic actuator stick under the shift knob. Remove the "horse shoe" clip from the shift knob and remove knob by pulling strait up. You can twist it right and left a very small amount to loosen the knob, but not much.
Once you have the shift knob removed you will see the plastic actuator stick. Push down on the stick and put shift lever in park. If that works, the shift knob or stick is worn out.
Let me know.
Regard,
