BA10-5 shifter removal

I looked and didn't find a clear explanation...I am looking to seperate the shifter handle from the stub on my '88 YJ. What is the easiest way to do this or do I HAVE to remove the whole thing from the tranny?

remove the plates off the top, pull up the rubber underneath. There are three bolts that hold the shift lever in place. remove them and lift straight out.

That's what I ended up doing but I was trying to find a way to seperate the stub shaft from the shifter. Thanks.

As stated, I ended up removing the retainer ring but after getting it out it appears that it should separate similar to the t/c shifter.

Theoretically, it should separate at a "knuckle" above the shift tower cover.

But, I've always found it far easier to just pull the tower and stuff a CLEAN rag down the hole to keep crud out. As mentioned - three screws, and it's out.

Problem. Solved!
