Once you have removed the shift knob and removed the collar, use a plastic trim tool and carefully pry the console trim upwards. Use plastic tools to reduce the chance of marring or damaging the plastic trims. These parts are held on with clips and may require a bit of force to pop them loose. Once the trim is loose, disconnect the electrical connectors near the dash. Depending on your YEAR & MODEL, these connections will vary.

Using a plastic pry tool or flathead screwdriver, work your way around the edge of the shifter cable seal. Once the seal is loose it should just pop out. This is the last thing holding the cables to the car. Remove the cables completely. Let the shifter side of the cables hang and slide the transmission side out through the bottom.

The Hybrid Racing shifter cables require the use of the factory brackets and seal. With the cables side-by-side, line each cable up and mark the location of the bracket. This will be used to transfer the bracket to the proper location on the new cable. Repeat these steps for the second bracket.

Since the Hybrid Racing shifter cables have a larger and reinforced core they are thicker than OEM. Cut the OEM cable seal down the inner groove to enlarge the opening. Slide the OEM cable seal on the Hybrid Racing cables. Make sure you cut enough so the seal will squeeze around the cables.
