Default 98 5 speed J gate swap

Iíve purchased an aluminum J gate shifter plate. The stock black plastic is cracked and broken. Can anyone point me to a thread showing removal of the old plastic and install of aluminum plate?

Again, itís the 5 speed NA 98.

Thanks

This will give you a good starting point. The XK8 and XJ8 are the same

Thanks. Just what I needed. It would be nice to have that gasket/cushion underneath. I couldn’t find one to order. Maybe NLA?
