Anyone Replaced the Automatic Shift Cover

A bit nit picky, but the plastic accordian piece that rides along with the automatic shifter is kaput. It no longer covers the mechanism in park or while in drive. Has anyone replaced this? Details? Parts list?

Here is the part:

eEuroparts - Shifter Jalouise - # 4777173

My friend did this on his 9-5. First pull the parking brake and put it in Neutral. Then, working from memory here, he pulled up the little rubber piece around the PRNDML panel by hand (careful though, make sure you get the plastic piece that's on the bottom of the rubber part, because he accidentally pulled the rubber off that and that little piece seems to be hard to find). Once you have that off, there should be some screws holding the PRNDML panel on. Undo those and lift it up. It won't come all the way off, so you might want to have someone hold it for you while you replace the jalousie. What he did to replace the jalousie itself was cut the old one off using wire clippers then he clipped one side of the part that goes around the shifter on the new one and slid it into place. Then reassembled.

Hope this helps. If you need something clarified, let me know.

I have some pictures of that job, on a 2001 9-5. The pic's are on my profile. I took the hole shifting unit out. Not to bad of a job. Sometimes it is easier to remove more parts, so you can work without getting irritated. But thats me.

Cutting a slit to fit it around would sure be easier! I may look at that next time.

I usually remove the shifter handle itself. Which requires breaking and reconnecting the sport button wiring. There is also a tiny screw behind the shifter button that you should know about. It's all a bit of a pain and I give myself a good hour.
