Hi! Remove the trim piece sorrounding the gearchange assembly, unbolt the part with the "PRNDSL" gate and lift it up a little, and loosen the locking nut on the gear knob rod with a 13mm open end spanner..
Gear lever must be properly aligned when finished, gear lever out of position can make trouble for the automatic transmission.
So when finished check that when you are in "D" you have no tension on the lever, you should have 1-2mm clearance in front of the shaft in the "DS" part of the gate.
And check the other forum threads in the bottom of this page
