Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
To change the shift indicator bulb is fairly tricky
What you first need to do is remove the trim around the shifter.
Then you need to pop off and slide the shift indicator housing up so you can access the bulb.
Let me try to get you some images to help you.
images would be helpful - it is for my daughters car
Once she manages to remove the cover, is there anything else to remove, or is the bulb right there?
Once you remove that top trim from the first image
The whole plastic shifter cover needs to be popped off and slid up the shift knob so you can access the bulb
It twist locks into that cover
that is in the second image where I have the arrow
That piece once popped out, is tricky to pop back in so take your time with it
It's very tight also.
at least for my paws
so just to be on the save side, once removed she can change the the bulb, right? And what kind of bulb does she need?
There is two pieces that need to be removed
I don't know the bulb number. You would need to pop it out and take it to a auto parts store to have them match it up and give you a new one
all right sounds good, we will give it a try. Can I contact you again if I have problems or would that be a new question?
nope, you can always return to this question if you have any more questions on this topic
thanks for your help, I will have to forward this to her, because she is away at college. Hopefully she will manage to get the the two pieces off.
...and how do I contact you again in case I have more questions (hopefully that is not needed, but just in case)
just log back into JustAnswer and come back to this question
alright, will do - thanks again
one more thing, even after I push accept, I still can ask you about this issue, right?
yes you can
then I will let you go with my thanks
take care :)
