Cliffy, I am going to argue all day long with you on this one!
I can always use an extra $200. Bring your C coupe to Florida and I will demonstrate the extraction. By the way, I am only going to extract and replace the loosened rod assembly not the rest of the job which is not in dispute. Cash only, and I will be using the counterfeit bill verification marker. :P

Cliff: how about posting a video of the process?!

I hear ya, Cliff. Not one of those common procedures. 5 years? Hmmm. I just clicked off 70, was able to renew my license and just might be cognizant enough in 5 years to watch a video. Keep me posted!😁

I doubt the gearshift lock prevented any car thefts but it certainly kept anyone from stealing your shift rod.
It seems that once the original owner sold his car the first thing that happened was the shift lock key disappeared!

Observations from an old curmudgeon

I think the only thing the shift locked prevented from being stolen was the shift lock (when locked). Of course the perpetrators could steal the whole shifter assembly.....
Some days it just isn’t worth the hassle of chewing through the restraints......

Actually when it’s locked the shifter cannot be removed. It’s locked in.
