Exclamation New gearshift lever?

The end on my gear shift lever broke, now it's just hanging by the overdrive switch wires. Well, I have it taped on there for the moment. I have a couple of questions -
Do I need a whole new lever to replace that part? Kinda looks that way on the sketch on powerstrokeshop, not sure though.
If I do, how do I replace the gear shift lever?

Thanks!

It's just the cover to the o/d button, correct? If so, you do not have to replace the whole lever(which is a little project in itself!). Go to your local Ford dealer & ask for the o/d switch cover. If you need the switch too, installation & removal is easy. Slide the switch out of the cavity. Replacement is just the opposite & the button cap snaps onto the end of the lever. Now, if you broke the entire end of the lever(which means you're probably a jacked-up individual!) here's what you do:
Disconnect your batteries. Remove the ignition cylinder. To do this, you'll need your keys & a straight pick or a small pocket phillips head screwdriver. Turn your key back to 'accesory'. Look for a hole under your steering collar below the ignition cylinder. Insert the pick/screwdriver into this hole. Turn your key to the 'start' position. As you're turning the key, apply pressure to the pick & pull the ignition out as you turn the key to 'start'. Remove the screws that hold the steering collar around your steering column. @ this point, it will be necessary to remove the 2 nuts that hold the steering column in place. After you pull these nuts, the steering column will be able to move downward & give you access to your shift lever. Disconnect the TCS(o/d wiring harness). You can either remove the entire assembly with torq sockets, or you can drive out just the lever with a punch. Either way, both installation procedures are opposite of removal. If it's just the o/d switch/cover, I'd go that route!

Thanks, I got it fixed. Had to do a whole new lever. Not too bad, $59 and 30 minutes or so. Good as new.
"Cup Thrower Mod" - the old dog ear style sucked, so I put the holder for an 01 into my 99. Color doesn't match exactly but it holds my cups!
