    Does this pin need to be removed to take the shifter out? I tried tapping it out and now the shifter won't move side to side:doah:

    to take the shifter out of the cover? you just push down and rotate the locking collar at the bottom of the stick.....no tapping roll pins at all.

    Why did tapping that pin keep it from shifting side to side?

    Because you pushed the pins into the sides of the shifter mechanism. There are actually TWO very short pins there, rather that one long one. One comes in from each side. They simply serve as part of a latch that holds the shifter down into the trans. To remove the shifter, put the trans into neutral and then press down on the thin sheet metal dome at the base (right where the shifter goes into the housing). While pressing down, rotate the metal dome to the left about 1/4 of a turn. Now the shifter will lift right out of the transmission.

    While you have it apart, tap the pins back into the correct position. ;)
