Steeda tri-Ax Shifter Installation
Here are some pics of my Steeda Tri-Ax Installation.
This is the Factory Shifter and knob in Second gear.
1. Remove the shifter knob
2. Grip the plastic chrome at the rear where the boot meets and pull up slightly about 1/4 inch.
3. Once this pops up, then you can pull the entire trim piece straight back (like towards the dome light) This trim is held in by four compression clips. Make sure they stay with the trim that you are removing and not fall out.
4. Disconnect the lighter, the entire plug rotates so it is easy to find the latch on the connector to release.
5. Set the trim someplace where the helpful neighbor will not set on it while you are not watching.
6. Remove the four bolts that secure the dust boot assembly.
7. Remove the four bolts holding down the factory shifter.
8. Lift the factory shifter out. There may be some ATF on the bottom of the shifter so have a rag ready as you remove it.
9. Remove the factory sealant around the shifter housing. I just used a razor blade.
10. Pull the plastic cap off the factory shifter and transfer it to the Tri-Ax. IF the cap is NOT on the shifter then look inside the transmission.
11. Put down a small bead of gasket sealant around the shifter housing and mount the shifter in place using the four new bolts that came with the shifter.
NOTE: This is where you would normally adjust the shift stop. However Tremec has released the following message.
I removed mine.
11. Install the big washer around the shifter, this is supposed to protect the boot from getting caught in the shifter.
12. Replace the small boot over the new shifter.
13. Replace the large boot
14. Your choice here to use the top position or the bottom position for mounting the shifter handle.
15. Tighten the bolts down.
16. Replace the trim ring and boot, don't forget to let the neighbor help, let him hand it to you. Connect the lighter power then simply align up the tabs and push it straight in. It will pop into place.
17. Screw the knob on.
