Question about 1997 Oldsmobile LSS
Need to fix the rainwater leak under the carpet. Trying to take out the center console to be able to take the whole carpet out. It looks like the shift knob needs to be taken off first to let me take the console out. This is a leather trimmed knob. It wobbles just a little bit on the shaft, enough to let me think that it is not screwed on. Looks like it is locked on the shaft by some spring ring maybe. There is no fixing screw anywhere but there is a thin slot on the front of the knob. It faces forward, I can't see what is there. Thanks for your help
That thin slot you speak of is actually a clip. If you put a small flat screwdriver behind it and pull towards front of car, it will slide out and shifter knob comes right off.

I don't know if there are any tricks. At this point you just have to wrestle it out. There seems to be a certain position that works but I don't remember exactly. I do know that gettting it out was easier than getting the new one back in.
