Changing the gear shift **** on a 2000 Ranger XLT

hey whats up? i may have yer answer, let me know if it works, i asked the same question on a message board somewhere else and someone said that it is just superglued on - maybe also screwed on, but all they said they did was carefully twist to break the glue and off it came, i have tried taking mine off with a pair of pliers but it couldnt get it, prolly need to pliers to get it off carefully. good luck!

Gear shift ****

So, I got down and did this.... I have an '03 Ranger. The **** will absolutely not twist off. I discovered it is held in place with verticle grooves to keep it from twisting. I had to cut the rubber outside off with a knife. Underthat was a hard plastic shell which I had to bang to crack it off. Under that was an oddly shaped metal which I bang from the underside so it would slide off the top. Now you see just the stick and can do what you need to do, but you will never be able to use the one you broke off. The **** I was putting on was a little smaller so I sawed off about an inch with a hack saw so the **** would line up with the rubber skirt. It sucked and you will ruin the original ****, but the **** I have on works great and is not going anywhere.

grasp the nettle firmly

If your going to do it do it right,
there's no way to break off the plastic OEM **** without messing up the shaft (ouch)
I started it on mine years ago and wound up having to file off the top of the shaft shortening it, then hand filing the stick to a size that would fit aftermarket shift *****. The result was a little sub par at first, the set screws wouldn't last, and even after locktite weren't stable for long. SO... get a power tool, grinder or other, Measure often and buzz down to metal shaft then to the size that will fit your preferred ****. A little JB weld or metal freindly epoxy and lock-tite the screws and you should be good. I love the feel of a 'sports car' like shifter and never liked the coin in the rubber OEM but in retrospect i'd have put a rubber ball over it and saved some time. Course my dog would have chewed that up too...

I don't know how to get the shift **** off but I was wondering where you got your shift **** because I have a manual 2000 Ranger and I'm looking to get a new ****. Do all ***** work on all trucks or are they made specifically for certain trucks and years? Any help would be great

I've heard of heating it up with a heat gun and then just pulling up on it will work. I changed my whole shifter to a hurst. $200 from summit.

I grabbed mine and pulled hard. Came off. Just make sure you don't hit your mouth with your **** and fist. It's just pressed on...
