I have an early 93 Esprit with a broken strap and broken collar for the reverse lockout. I have both parts from JAE. I have the shift lever out, but not sure how to get to the strap. There is a spring pin in the middle of the level that appears to hold the internal mechanism in place, but it won't pull out. It looks like the side be be peened in place. Not sure how to bend it out the tabs since it's steel. Can you access the strap if you pull off the knob?

I did the same thing but the strap was not available at the time. Do a search I think I posted some pics of the lever apart. I cant remember exactly how it comes apart. I made a strap with threaded rod.

The knob is a friction fit. Carefully pull it off and you can see what is going on in there. I think it slides out the top.
