How do you get the plastic piece in teh center of the car up? I tried gently prying it up, but it doesn't seem to want to give and I don't want to bust anything. I need to get at the shifter base to stop a squeak taht occurs when shifting gears. Anyone?

Be sure to remove the screw in the front under the ashtray. Front,right side,1 phillips screw.I removed my console tonight to install the gmm ripshift shifter and without the helms service manual,I`m sure I would of broke something.
My first post here and I have one question. I had no problem getting the console out and removing my stock handle but how the hell do u get the **** off of the shifter? I bought a shorter handle so I am trying to get this done a.s.a.p. I was trying to unscrew it but it only bends a little (almost seemd that the center rubber in the handle is attached to the ****) Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
Its like a quick disconnect fitting. The **** can be pulled right off the handle. The shorter handle problably does not accept this **** unless it was made specifically for the holden shift ****. Anyways you can pull the **** right off, a little easier with two people...I dont care to pull the **** off when the handle is attached to the shifter assembly.
The leather boot is zip tied to the **** itself. If you go with a different **** chances are the leather boot will not want to stay butted up to the **** but and you will be able to see a small portion of the handle.
OK got it.....definitely appreciate all the help....btw since I am new here this may be a stupid question but it looks liek you run/work for Speed Inc. I have been conemplating the CAI for my goat....any dyno numbers on that? Thanks once again I definitely appreciate all the help!
Depends on the car. Some cars have gained around 10RWHP, some 15-18. On stock cars there is not a huge difference between all the induction systems, but our components are larger -- when you start modifying your GTO more with headers or a cam thatís were you will start to see great gains with ours. Plus ours cost less than many of the others out there.
