5) Remove the 4 Torx bolts holding the shifter:
Use a T-30 bit and a 3/8 drive ratchet. Firmly press down as you break the bolts loose, then turn them out.
They will be hard at first, as LocTite was used to secure them.
I broke them all loose first, then turned them out in a criss-cross pattern, as you would with wheel lug nuts.
Once all the bolts are removed, carefully extract the shifter taking care not to catch the cables.
