Default Change the gear shift **** (easy)

1st: press BREAK peddle down for safety because you'll need to shift down to the NUMBER 1 shift to see it

2nd:pull down the skirt thats covering up the **** at the bottom

3rd: once you pull down the lil shirt you'll see a U clip thats attached to the ****...I will place pictures below to show you what your looking for

4th:use a flat/strong object such as a FLAT BLADED SCREWDRIVER
5th: with your tool, act like your stabbing the little U clip but force it outwards towards you radio, it should start to come out easily.

5th: YOUR DONE ONCE YOU GET IT OUT...now u can replace your new on in..ENJOY

They fit 100%
They come from some Pontiac bonnevilles
Also grand prix shift ***** work with our montes not sure what else lol but I used to have an 05ish Pontiac G6 **** on my monte before I now have the leather one
I believe Jason (maniac) has some for sale they difinitelty feel and look wayyyy better than our stock cheap ones

Jason MIGHT have 1 left.

They fit 100%, they are the exact same ****, just have a leather wrapping on them instead of the cheap vinyl/plastic.

The only difference is the button was gray, but you just pop that off and swap your black button over
