Hello,

I am going to be replacing my gear shift motor, and I’ve heard to put the car in neutral, disconnect the battery then do the work is how to approach this replacement...

Can anyone that’s done the work confirm or deny? Thanks in advance for your time and help!

Happy New Year!

For what it's worth, I left it in park and swapped mine out. I did align the triangle on the gears to match what it was on the removed set, but I don't think it matters; I believe the relearn process should figure out where it needs to be. Do note the operative word being "believe" and not "know".

Here's a link to my shift motor teardown
