    How do you remove the selector lever in a automatic 2001 9-3 Saab. I need to replace the accordian slide but can't get the gear shifter off.

  • fondarosa107 Jun 04, 2009

    THE 2 CARS EXPLAINATION WAS SOME HELP. I CAN SEPARATE THE GEAR SHIFT INTO TWO PARTS, I CAN REMOVE THE TORX SCREW. BUT I CAN'T REMOVE THE PULL UP LEVER SO THE COVER AROUND THE SHIFTER CAN BE LIFTED OFF.

    MY CAR IS A 2001 9-3 AUTOMATIC

  • fondarosa107 Jun 04, 2009

    MY CAR IS A 2001 9-3 AUTOMATIC SAAB CONVERTIBLE.
    I NEED TO REPLACE THE ACCORDIAN SLIDE. 2CARSPRO DID SHOW HOW TO REMOVE PART OF THE SHIFTER, I WAS ABLE TO REMOVE THE BACKSIDE OF THE SHIFTER AND THE TORZ SCREW, BUT I CAN NOT GET THE PULL UP LEVER OFF. I CAN'T REPLACE THE ACCORDIAN SLIDE WITH THE PULL UP LEVER STILL ON. THIS SHIFTER IS NOT THE ONE WITH A BOOT. THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE A SNAKE ABOUT TO STRIKE. HOW DO I REMOVE THE PULL UP LEVER?

  • fondarosa107 Jun 09, 2009

    The torz screw only holds the outside cover on. I need to remove the part that slides up so you can change gears. I can't remove the cover with this still on the shifter.

  • fondarosa107 Jun 09, 2009

    I don't know what you are trying to remove? All I need to remove is the acutal shifter. I need to replace the accordian slide but can't until I can remove the shifter. I have ask numerous EXPERTS but have not received an answer to my specific question. I found the torz screw that holds the leather outer covering on but I can't get past the piece that you raise to actually change gears. It is a small tab looking part. I don't need to remove the whole console.

How do I relplace gear shift?


If you have a stick shift ( floor shift) remove the boot around the gear stick and the insulation on the floor to reveal the 4 bolts that hold the shift turret on to the top of the box. Undo the bolts and lift the gear lever assembly out of the gear box.

2001 entrepid automatic problem


It depends on what you mean by 'won't go into gear' what the problem is. If you mean it won't let you shift the selector there are several possibilities. If you mean you put it in drive and the car doesn't move you've got something wrong with your transmission.
First thing I'd suggest checking is the center console shift selector. Loosen the shift knob retaining screw with an allen wrench and slip it off. Then remove the shroud to the shifter or just lift it up enough to see what's inside. There is a small cable that prevents you from shifting the car in certain situations, such as when the car is off or moving down the road. The big cable is the shift cable. Make sure they're all in their proper positions and on their levers and none are damaged or broken.
If you want to you can remove the small cable and now try shifting the gears. I actually have driven the last hundred thousand miles in my car with that cable off. If you choose to leave it off though you'll have to be careful not to shift it when you shouldn't. There are a few electrical relays and controls that also control that cable, they should be checked too.

2001 sabb 9-5 will not go into park


The shift linkage and gear selector/neutral safety switch are integrated into a small flat unit on top of the transmission located under the battery tray which has 4 bolts 10mm to remove. The shift lever is exposed when the tray is removed and may be obstructed by something that has fallen in its path like loose wire harness, work glove, you name lt. Check all fuses in fuse box then visually inspect the movement with a helper moving the shifter. The shift mechanism itself may be worn out and happens frequently. Good luck.

HAVE A 1989 FORD F-150 WITH AUTO TRANS THAT YOU CAN'T SHIFT OUT OF THE "PARK" POSITION AT THE STEERING COLUMN. THE TRANY CAN BE SHIFTED AT THE TRANS WHEN LINKAGE IS DICONNECTED.I THINK THE...


What trans? AOD? This is 1992 F Series, all I have.

Shift Controls, Automatic Transmission The transmission shift control linkage or cable transfers the transmission operating mode from the selector lever to the transmission. The indicated transmission position on the steering column is transferred to a shift lever on the bottom of the steering column. On vehicles equipped with cable-operated shift systems, the indicated position of the transmission selector lever is transferred to the transmission through the shift cane, then to the cable, and down to the transmission manual shift lever at the transmission. On vehicles equipped with shift rod assemblies, the rod transfers the indicated transmission selector level position through a bell crank assembly to a control rod. The control rod transfers the indicated position to the transmission assembly.
----------------------------------------------
Automatic Transmission Manual Linkage Adjustments
  1. With the engine stopped and the parking brake applied, place the transmission selector lever at the steering column in the D (DRIVE position) for C6 applications and in the (D) (OVERDRIVE position) for AOD and E4OD applications, and hold against the D or (D) stop by applying a three-pound force to the selector lever knob.
  1. Loosen the shift rod adjusting nut at point A. Refer to the following illustrations.
  1. Shift the manual lever at the transmission into the (D) (overdrive) position for E4OD, by moving the lever all the way rearward, then forward two detents.
  1. With the selector lever and transmission manual lever in the(D) position, tighten the nut at point A to 17-24 Nm (12-18 ft-lb) torque. Use care to prevent motion between the stud and rod.
  1. Remove the three-pound force from the steering column selector lever knob.
  1. Operate the shift lever in all positions to make certain that the manual lever at the transmission is in full detent in all gear ranges. Re-adjust the linkage if required.
  1. On F-Super Duty Chassis Cab and Motorhome and Commercial Chassis recheck for correct operation of the automatic transmission selector indicator (PRN(D)21). Refer to Section 11-04A, Steering Column, Shift Rod Within Tube. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Under no circumstances will it be permissible to adjust linkage in any position other than the(D) position for E4OD applications.
---------------------
Automatic Transmission Shift Cable Adjustment
  1. From inside the vehicle, place the column shift select lever in the DRIVE position (C6) of the OVERDRIVE (AOD and E4OD). Hang a three-pound weight on the selector lever.
  1. Raise vehicle on a hoist.
  1. Remove the shift cable from the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Pull down the lock tab on the shift cable body.
  1. Position the transmission shift lever in the DRIVE position (C6) or the OVERDRIVE position (AOD and E4OD). This is three detents from the front-most lever position with the first position counting as one.
  1. Connect the cable end fitting to the transmission lever ball stud.
  1. Push up on the lock tab to lock the cable in the correctly adjusted position.
  1. Lower vehicle down from hoist and remove the three-pound weight from the column shift select lever.
  1. After making the adjustment, check for park engagement. Check the transmission control lever in all detent positions with the engine running to make sure correct detent/transmission actions. Readjust if necessary.

you have to push your shift override button? Your cable that runs from your ignition/steering column to your shift knob could be worn and therefore loose not allowing the car the be shifted out of park (as if your key weren't in the ignition). Hope this helps

What is the location of the neutral safety switch on a 2001 Saab 9.3 convertible. Is it a difficult repair with the right tools.


I'm not sure what you mean by "neutral safety switch". I have the shop manual for this car (I also have a 2001) and there is nothing listed under "neutral" or "safety" or "switch" in the index that looks like it.
