Default How to replace Shifter Jalouise?

A few weeks ago I somehow broke my "Shifter Jalouise" while shifting into Drive. I have the new part, but have no idea how to take the Auto Shift Knob off of the gear shifter. I would use my WIS but since moving to the new house, I have yet to set up the garage computer (only comp running windows xp, since WIS doesn't work on 7). Any ideas?

Here is a picture for those that don't know what I'm talking about:

Where you bought this part. I'm searching for that too, and how much it cost?

Thank you

Wow, yes. Sorry, I didn't even see it on the right in the original link.

Am I reading it correctly? Do I have to unsolder the sport button to disassemble the lever casing?

Default how 2 replace the jalouise 2002 9-5

I read many posts and finally...
You need:
- torx and flat screw drivers, small pliers, masking tape, small mirror.
* I used a small mirror (a compact that I stole from my wife) to do everything while comfortably seated on the driver seat.
* I used masking tape so parts that fell off were trapped like flies on fly paper.
1- pry off plastic around the shift plate. a small flat screwdriver is all you need. be gentle.
2- put the ignition key ON so you can move the gear to D. close the door or else the ding-ding will drive you nuts.
3- cover all the holes with masking tape to avoid loosing parts down the transmission. put more masking take with sticky side up to catch said parts. It looks like a baby bib. see pic. 007.
3- next you have to remove the torx screw above the clutch lever. it is hard to see but it is there. pic. 010. It comes off and likely stays there for you to grab with pliers but if it falls the masking tape will catch it.
4- pry off the front of gear stick. use small screw driver and be gentle.
5- remove the circlip with pliers. pic. 005. it comes easy but may fall. the tape will catch it. Once you remove the circlip you can take the clutch lever out.
6- my 2002 9-5 has connectors from the 2 wires to the Sport button. Some SAABs may have them soldered. Disconnect.
7- Now you can take the out the back of the stick.
8- Remove the masking tape, then pry off the shift plate. you can see the plastic tabs around it. it is easy but be gentle. do not take it out completely because the Winter button is still connected.
9- Lifting the shift plate just so, you can put the Jalouise in place w/o cutting it. I paid good money for it, so I was not about to cut anything!
10- Engage the clear plastic tape on left to the Jalouise.
11- Lower and snap the shift plate.
12- Put the back of the stick. Reconnect the Sports button.
13- Put the clutch lever. Insert the circlip and make sure the rod moves up/down with the lever.
14- Put the front of the stick.
15- Put the torx screw. It is mighty hard to set with your finders. I user a magnetic driver to set it in place. pic. 008. Unfortunately my mag driver is phillips, not torx, so I just set the screw in place, put pressure with my pinky, removed the mag drive, and inserted the torx. All this while looking at the mirror. no sweat.
16- done! pic. 012.

You can get an aftermarket one of ebay for $18. Honestly, the easiest way, a-be-it the half assed way, is to snip the side of the strip where it is the thinnest, pop the shifter trim cover up, slide the strip around and on the shifter area, put a dab of super glue where you snipped, push the trim cover back down and you're done. Takes less than 5 minutes, works great and has been fine on mine for years.

I am surprised cyanoacrylate (super glue) bonds rubber, being a contact adhesive that needs pressure to harden, and works well when surfaces match perfectly, like broken china and other hard materials; but hey, it works! I am a mechanical engineer and like to take things apart
