See the button just south of the gear shift? (and left of the e break) you need to push that down hard enough it will pop out. try using a small epice of wood or something and a hammer.

How to remove shifter

If your Alero is an automatic, look for a black, U-shaped clip inside the front of your shift handle. Pull it out with needle-nose pliers, then just slide the shifter off. It's a common problem for '99 Olds Aleros. Best wishes!

Yes i just bought a short throw shifter for my 2003 alero but i cant find out how to swap out because there is a plastic O ring around the factory shifter that i just cant remove.

I have a 2000 Alero Gx coupe.. Same setup. I had to use some sort of plyers, Grip the stock rubber shift knob, and twist to the left as hard as I could to get it unstuck, then set plyers aside, and unscrewed with my two fingers. Once off, that safety feature and spring slids right off. you can use it with a custom knob, unless you are cutting it down to make a short shifter (Or a short-shifter kit, either way works)
Hope this helps :)
