First remove the floor center console then, detach the air duct to the rear heat vent. Now remove the E-circlip and anti rattle clip then drive out the pin while removing the end of the cable from the ball. Remove the screw securing the gear lever housing, now unplug the selector levers housing connector, now you should be able to lift up the selector levers housing and undo the cable ties (2) that securies the wiring harness to the ignition switch and airbag, unplug the connection from the ignition switch. Now remove the clamp located beside the locking cables. Now carefully press the catches securing the cable ferrule towards each other and remove the cable from the bracket, now you can remove the selector housing. Here is another pic of this too.

I dont think you know wkat im asking. The part I need to replace is the slide tha keeps the dirt out of the console. The shifter goes thru it. If you look on the free forum some posted an easier way but I cant get past removind the pullup handle on the shifter. The post starts by taking the torx screw just above the pullup handle with the shifter in neutral. See www. Thesaabsite. Com/boards/veiwtopic. Php?T=212

What I sent is how to remove the shifter itself. So what exactly do you want to remove. The first time I sent you how to remove the shifter cable. This is all right off of Michelle on demand. Is there anyway to send me a pic of what you are trying to get to. As for the link the page has been removed so there is nothing there. Thanks.

I marked in your picture what piece I am trying to replace. You need to take the shifter apart to replace this accordian. I get stuck after I take the shifter apart in two pieces by removing the torx screw above the pull-up knob. You can see this torx screw by placing the shifter in neutral.

Hope you can help

Thanks-

Looks like according to Mitchell 1 you have to put the shifter into neutral or drive to get to that screw. Here is another pic I found too as to getting that cover up too. Hope this is of more help and sorry it has taken a while to get this but I am flying blind here as I do not have the vehicle here to look. Let me know if you need more. Thanks
