How do you remove the shifter from the panes on a 2001 Craft

Customer Question

How do you remove the shifter from the panes on a 2001 Chris Craft 262 Sport Deck with a Volvo outdrive?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: I am reupholstering the boat and need to remove the throttle and shifter to remove the side panel. I don't see a way to remove the handle.
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: I have removed other shifters without a problem. I don't want to force anything and break a part.

Hi Rich,

I'm sorry but I don't memorize boat hulls, and Chris Craft does not make service manuals that I can reference. The only way for me to be able to tell you how it comes apart is to see it. There are no time limits here, do you just want to get back with me with a picture later?

Will do Thanks.

You bet.

Hi Rich, any luck with the picture?

I figured it out. I had removed the set screw in the bottom of the handle but it would only slide up the spline about 1/4 inch and stop. I ended up just putting some pressure from the back with a large screwdriver and it worked off.
