The white rubber shifter boot is mounted with a metal ring around the bottom.
It has 4 studs made on it, and they protrude through the floor, with nuts on the underside.
Two are easy to get at and the others a not very easy.

You have to jack up the car, get under it and look above the transmission. You should see four nuts above the transmission where the shifter sticks up through the passenger compartment. You may not see all of them because of the tranny is off-set and the bulk of it. You may have to use a wrench to remove them.

Its been awhile since I done mine. You might have to lower the transmission by removing the four bolts the hold the transmission crossmember. No special tools needed, common tools will get you by.

I used a ratcheting end wrench with a pivoting head. These things have proven invaluable to me.
