Default Shift Shaft Removal FWD N/A 5 Speed

I couldnt find the answer to this question on any of the forums, or on any google search I made. Ive been a long time owner of these vehicles and im just digging into the one I have now. The issue im having is leaking from the shift shaft. I already have the new seal in my possession from 3SX. I contacted them about this issue and they told me the shift shaft can be removed without taking out the entire transmission. I was doing everything I could to try and remove it today but I dont think there is one possible way to do it on the 5 speed FWD without dropping the transmission. I could be wrong. My question is... Is it possible to do this particular shift shaft without removing the transmission. I couldnt find anything about the 5 speed FWD Shiftshafts anywhere. If anyone has any guidance/knowledge of this matter please please please reach out. I really appreciate it. Thank you.

I will attach an image of my current setup.

You probably need to remove that bolt just under it in your pic.

N/A trans requires disassembly to get the shaft out. You can drive the pin out and pull the lever off the shaft. That should allow you to change the seal without removing the shaft.

Thank you for the quick responses. I’m going to try and drive that pin out today. I attempted it but it wasn’t budging a few days ago so I just kinda figured nothing would come out. I also looked at the service manual and it showed nothing about disconnecting that top lever. Unless I was looking in the wrong place😩 I will get back as soon as I give it another go. Thanks again!

If that's got the solid pin and not the spring type roll pin, it can be a bastard to get out... I don't think they intended it to ever come out again. They're usually tapered, and only come out one way, as well as very tightly pressed in. I'd try to rig some type of screw press out of a puller or something. Beating on it that hard is just asking to bend the shaft, then you're screwed, and get to take it apart anyway.

The mitsu transmissions use the tapered pins. An air hammer is about it for getting them out, heat as well.

I have the same problem on my 91 Stealth. Took to trans shop beat on it a while No good. Pulled the radiator so I could drill it. Used 3 cobalt bits now I have a hole in the shaft. .Broke 2 c clamps used a 3 jaw puller to try and get the top off still didn't work. I have a seal and boot for the shaft that I have never used. I forgot to tighten one of the radiator hose clamps my daughter took the car and blew the head gasket. Cost me a lot to try and replace that stupid seal. Daryl at a Man Trans in Tallahasse Fl. knows how to do this spoke to him about it when I was buying a reman from them. Daryl laughed when I told him. He said getting it out at his shop is hard on the bench, but it also involves removing one or two screws on the side of the trans. Mine has been leaking on the cardboard in my garage forever. but now my synchro gears are wearing at 128000 mi. so I just bought a reman trans from him.Maybe some one else here knows the exact procedure. But it definately not as simple as it looks. You will probaly need to drop the trans and if it has 100000k miles you might just look at a reman anyway. If not keep a lot of carboard to catch the drip.

So I just got back from the garage and I was able to punch the pin out and replace the seal. What I did was heat up the arm with a torch for a few minutes avoiding all rubber hoses and such, took a punch, and hit it with the hammer a few times. It honestly didnt take much to hit it out after heating it up. THE MOST difficult part was actually getting the arm off the shaft. That thing was on there let me tell you. Had to heat it up a few times, hitting the arm back and fourth, prying it up with a pry bar as one of my buddies hit the arm side to side. Here are some photos of what it looked like.

Lastly I have a quick question. I was able to get everything back together. New seal, New boot....Buuuuut I could not for the life of me bang the pin back in ALL the way. I was wondering if it will be ok as it is? I will attach some photos so you guys can see what im talking about. Thanks again everyone for all the input. Helped a lot!
