I'm betting they do it just like the 2009 Pace Car... Then in 2013 I'll be ready for another trade...

I put those on there to show Chris when IM wouldn't transfer it.

That's my kitchen drain and I had to completely gut the inside of the cupboards.

Small allen head screw in front to pull the first one off. Same type allen screw to put it on. Just make sure that the spring inside doesn't snag on the pointed part of the stick.

DO NOT tighten the upper screw. it needs to just be snug but not tight, or you won't be able to shift it.

The upper and lower allen screws should both be in the shifter already.

The spring is already in the shifter. You probably won't have a problem with the spring but if you find that you can't get the key out of the ignition then the spring is hung on the inside. Easy fix. But you should be fine.

The whole thing should only take a couple minutes.

The upper one is in there?

IIRC I might have used the lower one that came out of the stock one.

Don't take the top screw off. Keep it on and just tighten it till it barely touches inside.

The lower one tighten fully tight, AFTER you make sure you can put the key in, shift to Drive and back to park and take the key out.
