Will a 2000 shifter bolt in a 1996 cavi?
Wednesday, May 09, 2012 1:39 PM
I have a 1996 cavalier, and i dont like the shifter. I wanted to swap the center council with one out of a 2000+, but then i noticed the shifters are different, and i like the 2000+ shifters better. I know the center council will swap over, easy. But can i get a shifter from a 2000+ cavalier, and will it bolt right in my cavalier with those 4 bolts, and connect to my linkage with no problems? Also, if it will work, is 2000-2005 all the same? or is 2000-2002 and 03-05 different? My buddy told me you have to lift up on the shifter knob for 2000ish cavaliers to put it in reverse, which wouldn't bother me. So, is it an easy swap?

The shift cables connection t differently between the 2 on both the shifter and the transmission. I also believe the throw is slightly different.
