Hello, anybody can tell me how can I remove the floor shifter handle of my AMC Eagle, in order to do a needed cleaning of the automatic transmission plastic bezel?

Recently we replaced the carpet and we aren´t able to remove it, so we installed carefully passing the little bezel through the hole of the carpet, but now I want to clean the bezel and it will be better to do outside of the new carpet.

Thanks to all from AMCevolution for reading and helping.

Tap upward under the handle while holding in the button.
There will be a spring trying to get out, so be careful!!

I think this is the same I look in the AMC manual, but I wasn´t able.
I pushed the handle button while pulling the handle, but nothing happened.

I will try again when I go back to the workshop where the Eagle sleeps.

Thanks for your help from overseas

I've tried before, it is anything but easy. It needs to be hit really hard, and it will most likely break the tabs inside the handle.

That is a problem, don't want to break after fixing everything else...

it might be easier to remove the whole shifter arm. I've done it one or twice in the junkyard, I think you have to unscrew the bezel, then there are some screws holding the base of the shifter to the console, then there is a nut to get the arm off the linkage....if I remember that all correctly.

You are right, as I see in the manual it looks very easy, if I got to not lose any screw into the gearbox.

Thanks to both, Spread and VAM for your help
