Rmoving Autostick floor shifter
Trona is home.
2001 Intrepid ES (called a Chrysler in Canada) 3.2 Autostick on the floor
Problem 1: Canít shift because I forced the stuck floor shift lever and the little arm on the lever bent and popped out of the eyelet or whatever you call that thing with the hole into on the console end of the shifter.
So how do I remove the entire shifter assembly to either bend the little arm back or replace it with a junk yard special?
The shifter knob is held on by a Torx 8 screw, right?
Iíve removed the four 13mm nuts holding the shifter assembly base, but it still wonít come out. Is there a wire under it? (Hoping I donít have to crawl underneath in -10F or even 32F weather.)
Any suggestions or warnings about trying to bend that little arm back?
Problem 2: I removed the plastic cover below the shifter knob which has the stops or dťtentes in it for gear selection to have a look at the shifter mechanism.
I put it back, but over-tightened two of the four screws, using a cordless drill for speed. Grrr.
Any suggestions before I get the Dremel tool to grind the heads off?
BTW, I once I get the shifter mechanism problem straightened out, Iíll get my local tranny shop to install a new cable. Good work, good prices.
