Customer: replied 4 years ago.

needing to know the first steps I would have to take the shift is not on the floor its on the column


no, up under dash, mounted basically on the side of the steering column

2 screws hold it to the column. sometimes easier to remove the nuts holding column up to dash, lower column down some till wheel on seat.

You remove the 2 small bolts holding switch to column, then there is a rod in the back for the key. Lift switch off rod, Alig new switch back on rod and mount new switch back on the column

It is adjustable to need to eb 100% you have it adjusted so it does NOT start in reverse or any other gear. Only park and neutral

its the top left in picture, shown.. tilt and non tilt very clse to same
