Remove the grommet at the bulkhead. Remove the shifter. Squeeze clip at cable. Pull cable from bracket at bulkhead. Loosen the hold down bolts at the air bag module. Pull the cable through the bulkhead into the engine compartment.

This is what they are currently doing to my Jeep at dealership. It would pop out of gear when I'd put it in first. Now that they replaced this part, now they are saying the "gear box" is broken and need to replace that too! I am afraid to say "what next" :(
