Gear shift knob

How do you change the gear shift knob on a 2002 Xterra? I have a cool skull head that lights up but can't figure out how to get the factory knob off the gear stick.

The shifter knobs on these vehicles is installed very very tightly.

I have never been able to remove one without ruining it by tearing the cover, which should not be a big issue since you're replacing it.

The knob threads on like a nut would (lefty-loosy, righty-tighty). I use a large set of channel-lock pliers and they are still tough to break loose.

Good luck and I hope that this is helpful!

Contact an automotive recycler (junkyard) to see if they will sell you one. Often you can buy one that fits (but looks different) from an auto parts store like AutoZone or Checker.

My car wont shift


Did you change all of the fluid in the transmission?

Did you use ATF+4 in your transmission after it was fixed?

Your transmission solenoid may be contaminated and can not operated properly. Your transmission is computer controlled the solenoid talks to the computer and the computer tells it when and what gear to use.

Does your car move only in 2nd gear?
