Lol. I don't think you can unless you want to take off the whole shifter assembly off. You can check out

I swapped mine out for Startech ones and it wasn't that hard...

For the T/C shifter, place the shifter into 4LO (or whatever is at the bottom) and then simply pull with all your might. To put the new one on, just slide it back down as far as you can and I had to hammer it down the rest of the way (using a piece of wood to avoid damage)...

For the tranny shifter; remove the centre tunnel (screws: arm rest and under the rubber mat at the front), unclip the tranny faceplate and unclip the O/D switch. Now my memory is a little hazy here but there may be a screw on the shifter near the base, if there is, remove it. Now, place the tranny in N and pull.

Install is pretty much reverse of that...

Job should take you about 30 mins all in...

Thanks, I just want to fix the light under the plate there.

No problem, once you've removed the shifters you just need to unclip the plate and lift it right out.

The light is not fixable, you will need to take it from another vehicle cut the wires and splice the new one in !!
