Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Hello I will help you with your question,
What is the year, model and engine size of your Jeep?
I see you opened a new question with the information I asked for. Just reply here
Can you post pictures of the ball area?
OK, you need to pull the shift tower on this one to get the shift lever off to reach the notches in the shift rail. Line the notches up and the transmission will be in neutral
Yes, the lever comes out with the shift tower, once you lift it you will see the "finger" on the end of the shift lever that moves the shift rods.
Once you have the tower off you can use a large screwdriver to move the shift rods so all the notches line up and that is neutral and where you install the finger and tighten the shift tower. The lever does not come out the top.
