I looked on-line and could not find any threads on this subject.<p>Yesterday I felt a sharp edge when trying to get the car out of park. I got out, bent down and saw the black button was cracked along the lower edge exposing the hinge pin and spring. I was not very happy! I am not sure how long it had been broken.<p>My questions are:<br>~ How does it come apart? TYhe shifter does not appear to uncrew.<br>~ Are the parts available from Volvo and if so, what do I need (what may break taking it apart) as I am thinking hinge pin, spring and button. Will teh shifter handle have broken hinge pin brackets?<br>~ If the button "falls-out", how do I get the shifter from Park to R and back again into Park? It is my daily driver.<p>2004 C70 HPT<p>Thanks,<br>Erik

Re: Gear Shifter Button (soloracer)

I bought just the button on ebay. Not difficult to replace and instructions included. Only issue is that it is black, not gray.<p>Volvo only sells the whole knob AFAIK.<p>You might be better off just finding a used knob.<p>Mine worked in the cracked state for a long time till I replaced the button. I don't think the cracks affect function, but I hated the feel of the broken part.
