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.
THAT SOMEONE THAT SOLD YOU THAT TRUCK NEW THAT TRUCK HAD A PROBLEM, THEY EVEN THREW AN ADDITIVE TO THE CONDITION THE OILS PERFORMANCE BUT ITS TO LATER FOR THAT. REMOVE THE TRANNY OIL PAN AND CHECK THE PAN FOR MUDDY LOOK-ALIKE BUILT-UP. THE PAN WILL TELL YOU ALOT ONCE REMOVED. IF ITS CLEAN CHECK THE MAGNET SOMEWHERE AROUND THE PAN AND REMOVE THE OIL FILTER AND CHECK FOR CONTAMINATION.
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!
Hi joserosa if this is a manual gearbox you just have to grip the gear knob and pull upwards until the gear knob is removed, the same principle is applied for a auto box but hold in the release button while removing, regards Mark.
