Default The gear changing thing on my Honda broke. Can I fix it or do I need a mechanic?

I drive an automatic car and the top part where you press down to change gears broke. I feel like I can fix it and it doesn't seem like a big problem, but don't know how. Help me please! I drive a 98 Honda Accord.

I guess you didn't like our answers. I still say you can't do it.

if its just the shift knob it comes off quite easily. there are two screws on the sides of the gearshift know about 1" up from the bottom of the knob. take the two screws out and it lifts up.the button you push in has a spring behind it. when you taket the knob out the push button should just pull out. there is a tab on the bottom that has to go in the lower channel of the knob before you can push the knob and spring back in when you replace it. you can replace the knob, the spring or the button. the new shift knob just pushes down onto the collar and you lock it in place with the screws.hope that answers your question
