You should be able to replace the bulb with out removing the shifter knob.Remove the cover and lift it up as far as you can then you should be able to get to the bulb.You can also take it out of park and put into L or 1st gear to give you more room.
I need to find out how to put a new console over the shifter. the old shift indicator console got smashed so my girlfriend cannot figure what gear she is in. I got a new console but cannot figure out how to get it over the shift knob.thank you
I think it just slides off if you pull on it hard.If it has the overdrive switch in the knob be very careful.Check the knob really good and make sure there isn't a locking clip.If not you just have to pull on it hard.
