You may just need to put some more elbow grease in to it. Stock shifters have the tendency to really stick after a while. Be sure though to turn counter clockwise.

I'd like to replace the stock shifter knob (or

Usually there is a nut on the bottom of a shift knob that needs to be loosened, then the knob just screws off. Use a wrench, if it's hexagonal, if it's just round or there is no nut it may just screw off. It will be really tight though, be prepared to have to really crank on it to get it loose. The new one should just thread back on. You may need to install a nut on the bottom to adjust the rotation of any pattern or gear shift diagram on the new one.

Replacing Manual Shift Knob


I never took mine off but but I bet its either got a tiny allen bolt, or a locknut and its hidden under the leather or it has threadlocker from the factory and is not meant to come off. You might try and find an old grand am, grand prix or alero at the junkyard and go reef on one of those before destroying your stock knob, you could also try and call a GM mechanic at the dealership and ask them, just ask to talk to ther service department and then ask to talk to a mechanic. they would have to know, or maybe a local stereo place might know a trick or two. Hang onto that car if you can, it will be worth money someday..

Good Luck
