shouldn't have to remove the dash, remove the shroud around the column and there is a button that holds the lever in place, push the button in or up, I don't remember, and the rest of the lever should slide out and slide the new one in. Once you remove the shroud, you should be able to figure it out upon inspection.

I did a write up when I replaced the one in my 2000 GA.
You have to take the column plastic off, then you can see where the lever goes in. There is a thin piece of black steel surrounding the thing that holds the lever. You have to pry it off the right side of the lever and that will expose a small pin. Pull out the pin with a pair of needle nose pliers and the lever will fall out.
Slide in the new one, put the pin back in, bend the thin steel piece back in place and then you get to fanagle the plastic back on. Becareful, I ended up dremeling mine to fit (not noticeable) becuase that's how I cracked off the first lever.

I broke mine off on my 2000 GT and tried to JB Weld it back. That failed miserable.....
How much is a new lever and can I get it from someone other than a dealer?

it was 24 new from a dealer for me. (CDN) and took about 10 mins, including figuring it out.

I paid less than $20 CDn for mine at the dealer (corprate rate through our company).
