are you talking about removing an automatic shifter? if so, there are two screws that need to be removed. One is located just below the shift button underneath a little plastic piece that needs to be removed. And the other on the shaft. Once they are off, the shifter slides right out.
I wrote up a short how to in my build thread. It's VERY easy to do. I finally swapped out the CR-Z auto shift knob for the Fit Sport version.
To remove the stock shifter:
1. Remove the key cover to the left of the shifter.
2. Put your key into the opening and put the shifter into neutral-KEEP YOUR FOOT ON THE BRAKE!!- the car is still NOT running!
3. Remove the lower Philips screw on the shifter- its facing towards the front of the car.
4. Remove the cover, about an inch above the lower screw, over the second Philips screw with a very small flathead screwdriver.
5. Remove the second Philips screw.
6. You can now pull up on the CR-Z shifter VERY EASILY. There is no need to yank, pry or otherwise use ANY force to remove the shifter. It literally glides off!
7. You can now replace with a new shifter of your choice.
8. Reverse steps 5-1 and enjoy your new shifter!!
The ENTIRE procedure should take no more 10 minutes!
Here is mine:
I want to do the shift knob swap from the Fit also. I have Classico leather seats that are black with blue stitching and I had my center console redone with black leather with blue stitching now I just need the new shift knob
