How to remove shifter for an automatic?

I have a 1996 XJ with an auto and I need to pull the shifter out. I don't se any bolt or screws holding it on. How can I pull the shifter out so I can remove the console?

have someone watching you when you pull, there is a spring and some other stuff in there that will fly out!

couldnt tell you what to look for because whatever came out is gone for good

So I tell the swampdonkey to sock it before I give her a trunky in the tradesman's entrance and I have her lick me yardballs.

thats it? no screws or anything that hold the handle on the shifter? What does the spring so that shoots out? is it for the button? To put it back on do I just smack it on?

I've had no spring pop out, and my button still works.

I want to say it easier if you hold the button in, and pull like a rat bastid and it will come right off.

Pops right back on too.

it will work fine without the spring in it, it took me a while to find it when it popped, so naturally i questioned whether it was necessary.

it aides in popping the button back out, but there is another plastic piece in there(part of the handle) that keeps tension on there for you.

reinstallation is the same, just pound it on and twist till its straight

Better yet, have someone get it on video, then you can post yourself flailing about after that thing comes loose...
Just be careful!
