CAN I UPGRADE THE AUTOMATIC GEAR KNOB TO A NEW KNOB DESIGN LIKE 2009


yes most of them are interchangeable just have to get one that operates the same i.e. when pressing release button it pulls the pin up. BMW has kept that design the same for years just make shure that the body style is the same and shouldnt have any problems switching / fitting.

How do i get my gear knob off bmw 325i


Some gear knobs have a set screw on them. Look at the base of the knob all the way around knob. If there is no set screw than it is on just tight with thread lock. You will need to use some force to remove. You also need to turn in a counter clockwise motion to remove.

Removing and fitting a new gear knob bmw e46 318i man trans


Hi joserosa if this is a manual gearbox you just have to grip the gear knob and pull upwards until the gear knob is removed, the same principle is applied for a auto box but hold in the release button while removing, regards Mark.

Gear knob removal bmw 318 ci


It's very simple. Involves a bit of fore arm strenght.
It should pull straight off. Just put one hand around the gear knob & your other hand supporting or gripping with both.
Just pull straight up. It shouldn't need much force. A small amount of glue may have been used to help hold it in place.
The knob might come off leaving the plastic sleeve/insert in the shifter. Same again, just grip that & try pull it off. A vice grips should not be neccessary but if you need it be carefull not to apply too much pressure as you don't want to break the sleeve into pieces.
The new knob should have a sleeve with it. Normally it will be inserted & you should be able to just pop it straight on.
Make sure it's lined up properly. You probably noticed on the bare metal shifter that it has a notch normally running across from left to right. Well inside the knob if you can see in you will notice it has a plastic or metal piece that will fit into this notch. This is to stop the knob from spinning around or slipping!
Just push down on the top of the knob & try slide it over the shifter. It might not go down all the way with pushing so a few taps with you palm may be enough if you have big strong hands but if not be carefull & only use a rubber head hammer or something you can hold but won't mark or break the knob.
Put a towel or old t-shirt over the knob & use anythink heavy that you can hold easily with one hand & that has no sharp edges!
I don't think any glue should be neccessary but if you feel it needs a little & the knob is comming off or going on too easy then just a few drops on the sides of the bare metal shifter before sliding the knob back on should suffice!
Good luck!
