I think you have to take the whole shifter apart to change it, which would include disconnecting it from the tranny, a lot of work just for a bulb if you ask me.

I got it done, it was a pain though lol. Not something I would look forward to. You have to undo 3 torx screws, and the shifter knob. The guy before me stripped the screw holding the knob on, so it was all that much fun

I used a 194. You need to remove a green film, that i didnt do cuz i couldnt remove the shifter knob. It still looks good cuz my LED's were bright enough, but it would look better if I removed the film :/
