    Removing the shifter mechanism from the car is easy. All you need to do is remove the 4 securing nuts. I belive they require a 12mm socket to remove. Once you get the 4 of them off then you need a pair of needle nose pliers and remove the clip from the linkage on the left. That’s one is the easy one. Now the one on the right you kind of have to lift the whole shifter mechanism up and unclip the linkage from the shifter mechanism.

    Note: Before removing the second (right) linkage measure the clearance from the bottom of the linkage to the chassis of the car. Write this measurement down. Once you do that then you can take the whole mechanism out of the car and head to the work bench. Dismantle the unit (remove the top metal cover and disconnect spring and everything should start coming apart). Now you just have the shifter arm. Now be sure to remove the plastic bushings on either ends of the fork (you don't want them to melt when welding).

    Now the shifter arm is ready to be worked on. Now first things first, you want to push the ball up ¾â€
