Don't know on that exact one but in general you just have too remove any console in the way, unscrew the knob, remove the shifter boot, put it in neutral and remove the bolts from the top cap and pull the shifter straight up. I have seen some that you had too lift the cap and remove a pin going thru the swivel ball from side to side that holds the shifter in place. Just make sure that nothing falls out and into the transmission. Go slow, have a good light and be careful. When you put the shifter back in make sure it drops back in exactly as it came out, Don't let it get on the wrong side of the forks and forcing it can break off the tip of the shifter. It generally is not a difficult thing to do once you figure out how to get the center console and boot out of the way.
On most Toyota truck straight shifts the problems that I have seen (jumping out of gear & refusing to go into 1st or 2nd) are a little deeper than the shifter bushing. I'm not a transmission specialist so anything any deeper went too the guy 2 bays down.
Most mechanic work is just common sense and a LACK of force!

Why does my stick shift have play in it?

This is a common problem with older vehicles with many miles on them. The cause is from a worn bushing at the bottom of the shifter. You will need to have the bushing replaced in order to correct the problem. The part will most likely have to come form a dealership.

1994 toyota truck gear shift removal My bushing needs replacing and I need to know how to remove my gear shift to get to them

I'm assuming that it's a standard shift? Take the boot off so you can get at the bottom of the shifter where it goes to the transmission, as you are in the cab. The collar at the base, you have to push down and turn counter clockwise about a quarter turn, to remove it.
