Change gear knob


This is an "it depends" answer. It depends on the type of gearshift knob and its installation. If your vehicle is equipped with a manual shift and the shift lever is little more than a steel rod sticking up from the console, then it is easy to replace.

To replace it, simply do this:

1. Set the parking brake
2. Take the car out of gear
3. Center the gearshift
4. Place a piece of cloth around the gearshift knob to prevent damage
5. Place a ViceGrip (R) or pair of pliers around the cloth on the gearshift knob and gently begin turning the knob to the left
6. Spin the knob off the shaft

Remember, though, this works only if the gearshift knob does not have another function combined. For example, you might find a reverse gear actuator on the top of the gearshift knob or you might find a reverse actuator button on the front face of the gearshift knob. This type of combined function gearshift knob is usually found on automatic transmissions.

If you want to remove the gearshift knob from this type of shift, see the service manual and obtain the tools you will need as this type of gearshift knob is much more complex to remove and involves many different systems that have to be addressed before the knob will come off.

It is better to leave this type of fix to trained technicians.

I have an 1993 Ford f250 supercab..auto tranny. My gearshifter has always been a little loose but the other day I guess it snapped somewhere underneath the dash up in the steering column. My gearshifter...


Under your dash attatched to the steering column is your shift tube, at the end is a ball that your linkage goes too, that part has 2 T25 torx screws holding it to the shift tube, those screws are notorious for comming loose

1998 volvo s70. Gearshift has been sticking - must pull down lock to get it fully into "park". Problem today is that alarm sounds when you open the door or turn the key in the ignition. ...


There is a cable that connects your gearshift to the ignition switch, when this cable stretches, it does not allow the gearshift assembly to move when you have the key turned. Removed the assembly around the gear shift assembly and inspect this cable. Removed the cable and manually actuate the lever. See if this fixes the problem as it is common in the S70/C70/V70s that are pre 2000

My gear shift i stuck in park


You can get it out of park as a temporary fix by popping off the little cover to the left of the gearshift, then pushing down on the lever beneath the cover with a flathead screwdriver (or skinny key) and then shifting out of park.

Gear knob feels if it has come detached from the the gearbox and only moves forward anbackwards but the car is stuck in gear


Hi
the gear linkage has either snapped or come off, you should be able to remove the leather gear gaiter from around the gear stick pull it up and look through the hole. you may have to get under the car to pop it back into place but if it has snapped then you need a new gear linkage, its not expensive and easy enough to fix.

Hope this helps

My Hyundai excel is stuck in 2nd gear and the gear stick just wobbles freely back and forth between 1st and 2nd gear positions, though wont move sideways at all. Can drive car no problem - but only...


Easy problem. Check your clutch fluid (it is most likely low) master cylinder on the front of the gearbox most likely has failed, causing you to try and put it in gear, but then you broke the shifter cable. Easy fix.

2001 Dodge grand caravan sport. Transmission slipping/ jerking. Seems to run only in second gear... still slips and jerks. Smells of burnt trans fluid and the level is low on the dipstick.


I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.
