My shift lever is making annoying squeaking noises, and it's coming from inside the faux leather boot. How do I take this part of the console apart without breaking all the plastic lock pins?

Nobody here has ever taken apart their Impreza?

Okay, so I got help from the local Impreza club.

Open the cubby box /armrest. Two plastic caps hide two screws that must come out. Plastic moulding around the handbrake is then free to flip forward an unclip - disconnect mirror, seat, and other electrical connectors.

The gearlever knob must come off - rotate on the stock - and then the gaiter and moulding are free to unclip.

Lube the joint, and presto! No squeaking!



(WOW! A post by Setright, for Setright, and solved by Setright...)

Any chance the club would tell you how to access and change the small light bulb
behind the rear defogger switch?

I have a 98 Impreza Outback Sport

Thanks for any input..........
