Yeah.

VERY carefully. :yesnod:

Seriously, very few screws actually hold cars together these days. They snap together. Somebody on the Solstice board actually TOOK HIS CAR APART. No s#!t. Really!! Find that thread and send him a PM. The cars are similar enough that his suggestions should work on the Sky.

No aftermarket manuals. You'd have to ask a dealer for a shop manual, but that sort of stuff is disc based. Of course, if you find one you can be assured that our Solstice friends would have to pay "addition/adjusted market value" mark up from a Pontiac parts counter for their manual. :jester: :yesnod: :lol:

since 2000, all of gm's tech manuals have been online based, or sent out as a quarterly update disk to subscribers.

Satrunmotorsports.com now has several kits that you can use to change the appearance of not only the shifter surround, but the entire cockpit. Brushed Aluminum, Burl, Carbon Fiber and more.

Go to Saturnmotorsport.com and click on the Dual Filter Intake. At the bottom of that page, you'll see a link to "23 Sky Parts & Accessories". Click that and scroll down to the bottom of the page to "06- Sky Luxury Trim Kit". Sorry for the round about way of getting there, but their website doesn't display links in the address window.

or try this: http://www.saturnmotorsports.com/st...ywords=&strSearchCriteria=&PT_ID=125&P_ID=678

So did you get the silver shifter surround all the way out?

When I get my Red Line I'll be doin' some mods to the shifter area first thing, so i am curious about more of the details. I'm kinda glad i'm not the first one to attempt takin the shifter surround off.

Where were the 3 clips? Did you have to take off the e-brake surround in order to get the shifter surround out? and how did you get the cupholder thing to stop hangin' up? thx YellowSky

the auto shifter stick

Once I get my Red Line I'm thinkin' about takin' my auto shifter stick and making it look identical to the manual shifter, even though it'd still be auto. I don't like the chrome around the auto shifter nor do i like the handle on top... the manual shifter stick looks soooo good. I just don't want a manual tranny. I've been drivin' a manual for a while and i think I'm ready to go auto, esp on the redline - its so smooth.

Anyone else think the Auto shifter sticks are kinda ugly?

wow, the body colored shifter housing looks really nice. Put a nice glossy finish on it. Or you could also paint it to match the piano black center console....Hmmm........i think i may have to open up photoshop again, haha.

Add this to the list of DIY mods I plan on doing.


OH, and if it helps or not....at least from experience in my Tiburon, to remove the surround i had to remove the Shifter Boot to get a little better access to the panel, as well as the shift knob itself. I also believe it attached inside the console (bolted to the Head Unit Bay) if I remember correctly. You may want to try that out, just a suggestion.
