Most of these take a T-30 torx socket coming down from the top on the drivers side of the transmission. I believe there is another bracket in the way that makes it kind of tough but it can be done. Sometimes a 1" or 3" extension helps. If you feel up there you will feel the bolt heads. They are round and feel like they have a hole in the top of them.

On 2004 gmc envoy slt pulled in garage dash says in drive council shifter says in park truck won't start truck rolls back and forth shifter button can't push in please help


Since you can push it. It would be the shifter cable(clips broke or just came disconnected) or the bracket holding the cable on either end of it. Most likely at the shifter. I have seen them broke at the transmission. But it was a fault of the person trying to remove it from the bracket.

1996 GMC Jimmy w/automatic transmission


First, carefully disconnect the cable end from the shift arm on the transmission (pry gently with a screw driver between the arm and the cable), then take out the staple looking thing from the cable. Then squeeze the tabs on the side of the cable and slide it towards the rear of the vehicle. Take out the two bolts that hold the bracket on.

Removing the transmission pan to change the filter the linkage bracket is in the way . What is the trick to removing it or getting the pan down?


Take the shift cable out of the bracket. Then either remove it (two torxs 40 bolts on top) or bend it out of the way. You will be able to bend it back, with no ill effect. Also the heat sheild on the passenger side will need to be bent or removed It has two 10mm bolts. You may have to have some one pry down on the exhaust cross pipe to pull the pan out. If it's 4x4 I would recommend taking the front drive line out. Makes the shifter bracket easier. There is a rubber boot for the drive line at the t-case. It is held on by a metal clamp. You can cut it off or bend it open to get it off.

How to take off steering wheel.


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
If necessary for access or service remove the steering wheel. Except for on 1967-69 simulated wood wheels, be sure to use a steering wheel puller.
  1. Remove the nut/bolt from the upper intermediate shaft coupling, then separate the coupling from the lower end of the steering column.
  2. If equipped with a column mounted shifter, disconnect the transmission control linkage from the column shift tube levers.
  3. If equipped with a floor shifter, disconnect the backdrive linkage.
  4. Disengage all of the electrical connectors from the steering column assembly.
  5. Remove the floor pan cover-to-floor screws, the floor seal, and the cover.
  6. Remove the steering column bracket-to-instrument panel nuts and carefully lower the column. If equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the shift position indictor pointer.
Once the steering column has been removed from the vehicle, be careful not to drop it (especially on it's end), lean on it or damage it in any way; the column is very susceptible to damage.
  1. Remove the column from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the steering column in the vehicle. If equipped with an automatic transmission, connect the shift position indicator pointer.
  2. Raise the column into position, then install the column bracket-to-instrument panel nuts and tighten to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
  3. Install the floor pan seal and cover, then secure using the retaining screws.
  4. Engage all of the electrical connectors to the steering column assembly.
  5. If equipped with a floor shifter, connect the backdrive linkage.
  6. If equipped with a column mounted shifter, connect the transmission control linkage to the column shift tube levers.
  7. Connect the intermediate shaft coupling to the lower end of the steering column, then secure using the nut/bolt.
  8. If removed for access or service, align the matchmarks and install the steering wheel.
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.

Good luck..
