ya gotta shot of it Jerry ???

it depends on yer shifter... some unbolt, some ya have ta disassemble shifter to get out. i've had a few apart, no biggie... be carefull ya don't heat too much.. don't get hot enough ta "puddle" it... close, but not that hot.

post a shot of yer shifter or send it to me E Mail...

how close to the "shifter" do ya need ta get the handle hot to bend... a couple inches ???

if it's a couple inches, i'd wrap a real wet rag around shifter mechanism... there's some thin bladed shims so to speak in there... ya don't want ta melt 'em...

if it's a solid handle, i'd stay at least 2" or more above the mechanism...

if it's hollow... i'd be carefull Jerry, ya don't want it to collapse...
