yes... remove the console top...there are 4 snap lock areas on the shifter top, you can push on them to release the top. once you have the top loose, locate the white wire on the passenger side of the shifter. there is a small tab holding the connectors together. once you have that loose there is a small torx on the front of the shifter handle, remove the torx, the gently tap the shifter handle upward to remove it.

Hey, has anyone successfully removed the overdrive button from an 05 to 09 Mustang GT shifter without breaking it? Need to know how. Thanks.

Can I just ask why you want to remove the button from the handle? Curious.

I'm working with a variation of the White Madness ball shifter. If it works, it will look more like a standard shifter, but work as the normal shifter but without overdrive. I still want to use my overdrive button though, so will have to do something separately.

Hey,
Thanks for asking.
I connected it to a separate
12mm DC Power Button 5V LED, Waterproof Latching Push Button Switch On/Off 23V (Red 2V).
I dropped it into the console to the right of the shifter.
I set it for the LED to be on when overdrive is off.
I hope this helps.

hi, I’m actually in the process of doing something very similar. If you could go over some of my questions, that would be much appreciated.
1. Did you wire up this button to the O/D wire female connector that was already inside the shifter?
2. If so, would you show me where you bought the male connector?
3. Are you able to show us the finished product of where you end up putting the button?
Thanks you very much in advance!

When I moved my OD button I just cut the two wires and then ran them through a momentary switch/button. I think I used some old speaker wire to run it into my handle. I don't have the same type of set up but the wiring is just adding a switch/button to the circuit. I moved my button from the shifter display (tci unit) to the handle (B&M). Below you can see the button on the handle and the wire coming out the boot.
