Replacing the shift lever?

My old shift lever broke off where the od button is. I found a NOS ford unit for a 2001 f250. Has anyone changed one of these before? Looks like the key cylender(spell) needs to come out. Not sure how to do that but the rest of it doesn't look to bad. But if anyone has done this before let me know how it went.

Very easy to do,unhook both batteries,because you put ign. switch in run position,look underneath and you'll see a hole under switch.
Use a pocket-sized screwdriver,push up and switch will slide out-leave switch in same position after removal.
Then just take apart column case,slide pin out of shifter,unplug od wires.
then reassemble-not hard at all.
When you have it apart,make sure shift rod going down column still has plastic bushing seated in strap mount-if bushing is out,it makes shifter feel sloppy when going thru gears.
Does the shifter feel tight and hard to shift?

Thanks for the info. The shifter works fine but the end with the OD button broke off. The only way i could find to fix it was replace the complete unit.

Cool,mine broke off right where the plastic met the metal
Come to find out that my shift selector on tranny was so screwed up from who knows what,I had to pry it off with 2 foot bar and destroy it just to get it off.
New ***. shifts so easily now
Good luck!
