    Default Shifter bezel

    I have 1999 sport and was going to change out the shifter bezel. How to heck do you get the t handle shifter handle off. I think I remember on my 95' something like put it in neutral squeeze and yank. That don't seem to be happening though.

    You may have to pull pretty hard, but be careful... when it pops off, it pops off! I almost ended up in the back seat when mine popped off!

    Yeah I have played with mine a few times thinking about swapping out the bezel when the little slides were sticking... instead after it didn't come off very easily and I didn't want to knock myself out and into the back seat... I just pulled the bezel up and started using cleaning spray and wipes to clean them as much as possible... and was able to get them all moving again... so def be careful when you remove that shift knob...

    The one time I had to do that to the green lizard I used my puller kit, worked like a charm once I figured out where to brace it. I have all sorts of goodies in my puller kit, can pull just about anything now.
