The first thing you have to do, is to remove the chrome ring around the shifter. The rubber boot and chrome ring will pull up to the shifter knob to get it out of your way. There are 4 bolts on the top of the transmission that you should be able to to get through the hole in the floor. Then the shifter will come out. Make sure that the shifter is in neutral. It will be very hard to find neutral once you remove the 4 bolts.

Start in the truck under the dash. Pull the connector off the ball where it is attached to the steering column. Now for the hard part! That plastic connecter actually just slips onto the metal bracket holding it. There is a small tab on the backside with a plastic pin that sits in the bracket to lock it in place. Using a small flathead (stubby) you can pry that tab back, then using a longer flathead, just push that plastic piece upward, and it will slide right off the metal bracket.

Now comes the contorionist bit. There is a wiring harness running right behind the cable in that area, so it is going to take a little work wiggling it out. The cable loops down and should be tie wrapped or the like at another harness further down somewhere by the brake pedal.

You might benefit from freeing it from the floor at this point for a little more play. Pull back the carpeting under the gas pedal, it goes through a rubber grommet that just pops out (dont worry about salvaging it as the new cable comes with this grommet attached already).

Once the cable is free frim under the dash, you are home free. Push the whole thing through the hole under the gas pedal, get under the truck,
and all you have to do now is pop the connector of the ball on the tranny, and then remove the adjusting clip from the bracket on the tranny. To do that, just squeeze the two tabs on the back side and push it towards the front, and its out!

Putting the new one back in is just the reverse, (i started at the dash since it was much more difficult!)

To adjust it once it is in, all you do is have the tranny in park, pull the clip on the adjuster down and slide it back and forth until all is lined up

How to remove the 4x4 shifter on a 1999 F150


There's a retaining clip under the rubber boot that gets removed. Then the tough part comes when you try to dissengage it from the arm on the transfer case. I'm asking cause that's where I had problems putting it back on before. I had issues getting those two to stay together.

How do I remove the shifter from the transmission on a 1991 ford f150 4.9 liter, manual transmission


josh zehnie, The first thing you have to do is pull the carpet away from the shifter boot. You will see a screw on each corner of the boot that have to be removed. Lift the shifter boot and the gasket under it straight up as far as possible. You will now see the top of the transmission where the shifter connects. Again you will four bolts holding the plate that the shifter goes through. Remove these bolts, which are usually allen key type heads, and gently pull the shifter straight up being careful that you don't drop the plastic bushings into the transmission that are on each side of the bottom of the shifter. Reassembly is just as easy. Just be careful that you get the bushings back in place. Test the shifter before you replace the upper boot. Good luck with this.

How do i replace the plastic handle on my automatic shifter for my ford f150 2006 lariat


I assume you have a console floor shifter...You may need to pull shifter all the way back to low gear to see...look near the bottom on the back side of the handle...you should find a removeable screw or pull out clip...after removing this, the handle should lift off...New handles are roughly $35. at your Ford dealer...or they are plentiful in your nearest salvage yard...Hope this helps.
