Yes, the switch is just set into the top of the shifter knob and then the cap holds it in place.
Attention everyone, it seems like I am a total moron and the above is correct. Top gear (I'd rather call it that than 5th gear) is definitely not selected with a switch.

Apparently using a VIN decoder to decide what trans you have is not as accurate as actually just trying to move the trans into 5th.

The shifter knob still spins and moves up and down like crazy, but at least now I know that I can just replace the knob with something more conventional.
