Depends on what year your. . .

140 is???

On some, it's a bugger! My '94 model is spring loaded and uses a 'c-clip' as the capture mechanism. It's extremely difficult to get pressure on the shifter (ie push down) while simultaneously spreading the c-clip and inserting it back into the mechanism.

I think on later models it simply unscrews once you release the capture nut. Very straight-forward. But the picture above could be correct. Not sure for later models.

But in all cases, you must release the 'bezel' (has clips on side and back) before gaining acess to shifter. Check my web page (click 'www' icon below) and select MENU #23. These is lots of picture showing how.
