    Did you inspect below the knob like I asked you? You will need to push the shift boot down for access to see. If there is a jam nut under the knob, you won't be able to turn the knob, till the jam nut is loosened. Please inspect it and answer the questions I posed in my last post.

    Just checked my AllData repair software. No info is provided on removing the knob, because it is not necessary to remove it to remove the transaxle or the clutch. One drawing does show that the knob does come off. I'm willing to try to help, if you are willing. Have you managed to either slide the shift lever boot down to expose the shaft or snap the bottom of the boot up and lift it to view the bottom of the knob? Often, if the knob screws on, a jam nut is placed below the knob to lock it in place. If a jam nut is used, simply loosen it and unscrew the knob. Another thought occurs to me. Do you have the custom knob you wish to use as a replacement? If so, is the hole on the bottom threaded? If not, is there a tapped hole with a set screw near the bottom of the custom knob?

    OK genius, give me a clue. Is this a stick shift or an automatic? If you want help, you have to give enough information.

There might be an allen-head screw underneath a cover on the "shank" just below the ball...if not, pull UP as hard as you's a pressure fit shifter ball.
Good Luck

When you turn off car key wont cume out

You have a problem with the shifter. Common on the Aveo's. There's a switch on the shifter that wears out. When put in 'Park' it releases the ignition to remove the key. When that switch screws up it's not releasing the ignition. Replace the shifter. I'm a Chevy mechanic.

I cant shift from park to drive. I have to use a key to override the shifter. My 2007 chevy Aveo is a automatic

sounds like brake switch for shifter lock isnt working. UNDER BRAKE PEDAL there should be a cable that leads to the shifter in the mess of wires. make sure its fully connected. If not then unplug and reconnect that should fix if not then issue is at shifter end

Chevy aveo 2007 5door, shift handle feels lose, car goes

if its a 5 speed, yes the shifting is loser than normal cars. the reverse is all jacked up.. if its anything like my 06 aveo when you shift into reverse you have to lift the little circle thing on your shifter up ad act like your putting it into first.. If it grinds try doing it slower. I HATE this transmission. Chevy did a horrible job on picking it. I always grind reverse no matter what

Can't get the gear shift knob off.

most manual transmission shifter knobs are screwed on, twist to the left, look at the bottom of the knob, because some have a brass locking nut, if it does hold it with a wrench and twist to the left.
