Is it possible to remove the black rubber air foot switch from 2005 impala?
Rubber foot switch means the one you should push with your left leg when you turn the ignition switch to start a car

sorry,
here is more accurate one:
After you turn the ignition switch and when you need to move the gear from "Parking" to "other position e.g. Rear or Drive, etc.", you can't move the level.
You should push hard the rubber foot switch with your left leg, at the same time, you can move the level to the either rear or drive position. I guess this foot air switch is for security reason. it's around 10inch diameter, half sphere shape, underneath side foot brake, left corner of the leg space....
But my question is that it is possible to remove this foot switch?

I have no idea what that could possibly be. My brothers Impala has nothing like that. On his, and every other car Ive seen recently, you push the brake pedal down in order to shift it out of gear. KInda have to have the brake pedal. Could you post a pic of it?

Yes..its strange..
For my car, i have to push the brake pedal AND this rubber sponge cusion type thingy all together in
Order to shift outta parking..
Now i can guess its maybe custom addition from previous owner to add some additional security e.g.
Preventing car theft from stealing a car...but not sure....or maybe mechanical work around....hmmm
