SOURCE: shifter knob removal

the shift knob is glued and pressed on, the best way to remove it intact is to heat the knob with a heat gun and pull straight up with a lot of force, please be very careful because when the knob finally releases there is very good chance that you can hit yourself in the face, if the knob is not to be used again you cut a **** up the side with a dremal tool,

SOURCE: shifter knob removal

If it's a stickshift, many come off by prying out the shift pattern plate on top, there is a nut underneath. Best done when it's warm...colder it is the harder it is to remove. (use small screwdriver and pry up)

SOURCE: Hi, i have to remove

  • For the manual they should just unscrew. If it does not then there is a clip on the back of the shaft that you take a Flathead screwdriver and remove the clip.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here and I will respond to you.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Some knobs need to be physically unscrewed while others have tiny little screws at the base that lock the knob into place

SOURCE: How do you remove the shifter knob on a 2000 Chevy

Well it either screws off, depending on the supplier, or look for a small clip pushed into the shaft through the knob.
