You will have to go to the dealer, or wrecking yard and obtain a new shift knob. if you look in the front of the handle you will see a small metal piece that can be pried out with a small flat head screw driver and it will slide, reverse procedure to install

I have a 02 saturan l200 and the shift stick broke off from place where the gears are. I know it sounds confusing but I don't know the name of all the parts. Can anyone help me

Pull up on the shift lever boot to disengage from the console. The shift lever boot is rubber or leather or some other material !
Using a small screwdriver, remove the lever assembly retaining clip.
Remove the lever assembly ! I know this may sound complicated but it's real easy ! The shift leaver goes to a shift linkage that goes to the gear box !

My 1996 dodge neon has a crack in the dash by the defrost vent. is there a simple fix?

This depends on the type of crack ... if it is from the sun drying out the material and shrinking it a quick-fix will probably suffer the same fate and look worse when it happens. If the crack is from abuse (like when I threw a bunch of 2x4 lumber on mine and caused a crack) then you might be able to find some repair goo for it -- ask at an auto-parts store and they might have it ("repair goo" is not the real name of the material, but I don't know the real name off hand). Make sure you let the person who is helping you know whether your dash is real leather or synthetic material as the type of repair fluid used will vary with color and type of material to be repaired.
If you have a real-leather dash you might even be able to go to a leather-goods store and find a repair fluid there -- it would be basically the same as fixing a tear in a leather jacket. I know that the repair fluid exists, but I do not know the name ... just that I have seen it advertised on late-night television.
If you can't find a repair fluid that will work with the material that your dash is made from, or if your crack is caused by sun-aging of the material, you might have to replace the piece of the dash panel that is cracked to get rid of the damage. Just bare in mind that if your dash is sun-faded it will be very difficult to match the exact color with a replacement .. and you might be more annoyed with the color difference than you were with the crack.

How do you remove the leather gearshift cover on a 6 speed 2002 corvette

the six speed in these cars is a t56 tremec trans. the gearshift knob on these are just threaded onto the shifter lever. it is regular right handed threads so just grip it tightly and turn it counter clockwise to remove the shift knob. if you are only trying to remove the leather about the only way would be to cut it off but underneath it does not look good and you have to buy a whole knob not just the leather cover to replace it.

I can`t change gears the gear lever has gone limp it feels like a clutch or clutch cable I neen a diagran og gearbox

Standing in front of the car walk around to the passenger side and look in to where the gear shift arm comes through the fire wall you will see a gear shift tube bellows with a clamp and bolt coming through and at the end you will see the "gear shift guide control"(7) there is a "gear shift control mode" (6) that clips over a round ball at each end one clip faces front and one back ,one towards the middle of the car and one closer to the passenger side of the car , this had come undone at both ends and dropped off, by replacing this the problem was solved.
The part numbers ( 7 ) and ( 6 ) are from a shift linkage diagram pages 21 and 22 found on the internet through http://www.daewooclub.cook/forums/showthread.php?tid=1002
I hope this is of help to someone else out there
