This will be the first GM manual transmission I've worked with. The manual says: Remove boot from shifer and pull back Remove shift lever Question #1 HOW do I remove the shif lever?? I did a Toyota once and you had to push down and turn or something like that to get the shift lever out. Is it like that or is there a few obvious bolts you remove and it comes out? Next the manual says I have to pull back the carpet and remove the cover at the floor. Question #2 Do I really need to do that?? Will the trans come out without taking apart the transmission floor tunnel? Thanks, this 4 speed stuff is shifty Eric M.
