SOURCE: 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.

What do I do to fix the gear shift indicator on a automatic transmission?


The gear shift indicator is just a peace of plastic it could be broken or just come lose. I think that car has gear shift on the floor. Normally are screws on the side of the plastic cover on each side. Just remove the screws and lift the cover and you should be able to see if the pointer broken or just needs adjusting. You should not have to try on it. just remember that it is just plastic. good luck Jerry

1980 corvette with automatic transmission you dont have to push the button down to down shift from 3 to 2. How do you repair this


The return spring inside of the shifter might be weak or broken, or the tab in the shifter gate slot might have worn out or broken. Remove the shifter base and boot and inspect the slot and tab. (the tab rides inside of the slot). An excellent replacement spring can be found at:

Transmission out of sync


I see no one has tried to help. I am interpreting your problem as the Shift indicator shows the wrong gear. The pointer usually has a slotted opening with a screw locking the pointer to keep the pointer locked in the proper position. In this scenario, the pointer just needs to be physically reset. You will need to remove any panels covering this pointer.
Scenario 2 , Trans was locked in Park. Someone tried to force gearshift to move when Brake pedal was not stepped on and they stretched the shift components. May have stripped old parts beyond adjustment.
Scenario 3, Does not shift gears correctly while underway. Can be due to shift solenoids in transmission or connector to same solenoids. In this case clean connector to trans or replace solenoids.
Hope your problem is simply a pointer.

1998 ford f 150 and the pointer is off


I take it you mean the gear shift indicator. under the steering column you will find a wire attached to a hook. That is attached ta black thumb wheel on a white holder. just roll the adustment till the indicator lines up in all gears. Most times though the thumb wheel holder is broken and you can not adust correctly. You will have to use a 5.5 mm socket to remove thumb wheel and Remove trim around cluster should be 3, 7mm screws and then 4, 7mm screws holding in cluster. Remove indicator by pushing back the black tabs on each side of indicator at same time and pulling down, then reverse in install indicator

Transmission gear change


First question: Are your brake lights working? I'm fairly certain that on the Metro the brake light actuator switch is also the switch that disables the safety shift. If your brake light actuator switch doesn't work, you won't be able to shift, in other words.
Second: If the switch is working and you have brake lights, look for physical damage to the shift linkage under the vehicle. Note if it is bent, broken, has scuff marks that might indicate damage to it or such. If the shift linkage does not _appear_ broken, but you still can't shift, you should check for a broken wire or bad connection in a wire between the brake actuator switch and the shift safety at the shift lever. It's about 99% likely that one of these three things will be the solution to your problem.

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..
