    After you unscrew the cover and detach the connectors, give the wires going to the handle some slack and off the handle goes. There is just a spring loaded push button kind of thing that gets revealed. Seems customizable to me..[​IMG]

    No, the pinkish looking thing next to the two screws from the shifter handle.. that is what you press when you change gears.

    thought those autos had a index type lock out...
    that keeps the operator from shifting into reverse...
    as well as hold in park.
    You get to play with 3-2-1

    but I dunno... I have manual ;)

    modifiable into what :confused:

    Just to change the style of the handle. Looks to big and bulky, and its too plain. I want to make it more like something to my taste.
