Those that can be removed can be unscrewed, others are molded on and are a fixture.

SOURCE: Hello, I own a 93

The transmission is controlled by the Transmission Control Unit (TCU).

Throttle position, rpm, and speed are input parameters to the TCU. The TCU has a default set of shift patterns. These shift patterns change over time based on your specific vehicle setup and driving habbits.

The shift patterns are only slightly affected by driving habbits over many driving cycles. But, changing the relationship between the throttle position and the actual speed being reported by the speed sensor can have an immediate effect on shift patterns.

While your speedo may now be correct, the realtionship between rpm and thottle position has not been corrected. That would take a gear change in the differentials.

The TCU can be reset to an inital learn base line. When this is done, the TCU will instantly learn the dynamics of your setup.

Any shop with an advanced ODB scan tool can reset the the TCU. The dealer or a transmission shop would be preferable.

You really should change your differential gears as opposed to resetting the TCU

SOURCE: how do i take of the shift knob in volvo 240 automatic?

If you remove the top plastic cover, there should be a flange bolt which holds a spring connected to the shift lever. Be careful with the over-drive button so you don't rip out the wires during disassembly. Loosen that flange nut, remove the spring, and lift off the bottom half of the shift knob.

Now you can remove the two screws at the front of the plastic shift assembly cover to replace it with your new one. Reassembly is reverse procedure---take your time and don't force---the plastic is like those stupid map pockets that shatter when torqued!

Usually there is a nut on the bottom of a shift knob that needs to be loosened, then the knob just screws off. Use a wrench, if it's hexagonal, if it's just round or there is no nut it may just screw off. It will be really tight though, be prepared to have to really crank on it to get it loose. The new one should just thread back on. You may need to install a nut on the bottom to adjust the rotation of any pattern or gear shift diagram on the new one.

How can I remove the old gear shift knob and install a new one in my 2000 SLS Cadilac


There is either a small 'c' clip on the front/bottom side or it has an iternal snap ring. If it is the 'c' clip you should see a small slot that you can pop the clip out. If it has the internal one, it pulls straight up and off. Warning: Do not twist it, you will break something expensive in the shifter. From the service manual....

Detaching the shift control knob from the shift lever may require a large amount of physical effort.
Do not twist the shift control knob while pulling.
Firmly grasp the shift control knob.
Pull straight up to detach from the shift lever.

Installation Procedure
Align the shift control knob to the shift lever.
Firmly press down on the shift control knob in order to attach to the shift lever. An audible sound will be heard when the internal clip is fully seated.

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.

How to remove shift knob


it should just twist to the left. on older vehicles moisture causes rust and normal wear causes threads to stick. Don't give up!!! I found it helps to tighten a large C-clamp around the knob and then try to turn that to establish leverage

Bulb out in center console


You are correct, there is a bulb light lights only the center console...you will need to pull up on the shifter in order to gain access to the bulb...you don't always have to remove the shift knob to gain access to the bulb holder...if you need to remove the knob...pull the shift lever all the way down to low gear...this should best expose the rear of the knob...you should see a u clip that needs to be removed...(needle nose pliers) in order to lift the knob off...to reinstall just put the knob back in place...the u clip must be re-installed to hold the knob on...Hope this helps.

Replace auto shift lever


You need to remove the shift handle first...key must be on...no need to start...pull shift lever down to low gear...look on the back side of the knob...you should see a u-shaped clip head...pry gently under the u-shape with a scredriver to begin removal...then use needle nose pliers to completely pull the clip out...after this is removed...you will be able to kift the shifter knob off...Don't know if you mean replace shift knob...(known for breaking) or actual metal shift lever...if you need the shifter arm, your best find would be at your local salvage yard...some will remove for you...some will let you find your model and remove yourself...To re-install put the shift knob back on the shift lever...to lock in place then re-insert the u-clip to lock in place...Many good mechanics are not familiar with removing these shift knobs...Hope this helps.

Need to install new leather knob cover


Hello, I can help you with this. With a tiny screwdriver you gently pry up on the button in the middle of the old knob. Work slowly, pry up a little at a time on the front and then the back until the button comes out. Back and forth. If you look inside you will see a snap ring, you can use snap-ring pliers to remove it or some sort of sharp pick or a screwdriver, CAUTION, when it releases it may spring into outer space never to be seen again. Then just pull the old knob off and install the new one. Good luck and if you have any other questions about this just leave a comment.

Shift knob removal


Hurst is the only brand that's worthwhile to upgrade to.

Are you racing on the track?

Spending $ on a lighter flywheel and torque converter will get more bang for the buck.

Removal of gear shift knob


There are two types of shift knobs. One that unscrews and one that the lower trim of the shift knob separates from the knob using a trim stick. After separating the lower trim from the knob pull upward to release the knob from the shift lever. If a new shifter assembly is being installed, unscrew the original shift knob or separate the lower trim from the knob and pull up to remove the knob from the shift lever. Screw the knob onto the new shifter assembly's lever no more than 14 turns or install the lower trim onto the shift lever then push the knob onto the shift lever and install the lower trim piece onto the shift knob.
