I had this problem for months i wanted a new one that looked better. Here is what i did to remove it. First i went by where the boot ends on the shifter. If you notice it looks like a separate part than the shifter shaft. Take the bottom part that looks different and squeeze then turn counter-clockwise. After just a small turn, not even 45 degrees, pull down and it should reveal the metal and four plastic clips that are holding down the shaft. I then tried to remove this but could not so i did as the original post and removed the top with the gears on it and as i was pulling up on this, the whole thing came off revealing just the metal shaft. The plastic clips at the bottom were just there to help hold the knob from coming off. I hope this is helped some

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.

How do I relplace gear shift?


If you have a stick shift ( floor shift) remove the boot around the gear stick and the insulation on the floor to reveal the 4 bolts that hold the shift turret on to the top of the box. Undo the bolts and lift the gear lever assembly out of the gear box.

Is the fluid full?
Check the wires to the transmission to make sure they are not damaged.
Is the engine Light on? have you scanned for codes?

There is no magic fix for cars / trucks, I need as much info as possable

I wonder what is the POWER buttom near the shift gear on the Prado type S est 1997


It changes the way the transmission shifts. The shifts are more aggressive and it stays in lower gears longer.

I took my 2003 pontiac grand am to get a paint job. They broke my gear shift knob. In order for me to go into gear I had to put the broken gear shift knob in. Then I took it to wal-mart for an oil...


Contact an automotive recycler (junkyard) to see if they will sell you one. Often you can buy one that fits (but looks different) from an auto parts store like AutoZone or Checker.

4X4 gear shifter pulled off


It is held on underneath with 2 small 8mm head bolts. They probably rotted and broke off.. You will have to remove the 2 bolts and the big bolt on the side of the transfer case and remove the whole bracket if they are broke off. Only 1 might be broke because I believe the bottom hole on the shifter is slotted and the top one has the hole. Either way you will have to look at it from underneath. Hope this helps. Cobra..

I'm having a problem with the gear shift button sticking on my 95 olds aurora. Any ideas of what is causing this and how to fix it?


The shift selector linkage can get sticky once in a while. Put your parking brake on and with the car off put it into 1st or 2nd gear then pull the handle off of the shifter. Remove anything in your cup holder and then you can snap off the shift console cover and get to the shift linkage beneath it. Spray lithium or silicone grease into all of the adjoining linkage rods and work it in and out. Then do the same at the top of the shift selector lever that you pulled the handle off of and push down on the top of the little plastic knob protruding from the top of it...that is how you change gears. It may just be sticky only in THAT spot but it doesn't hurt to get everything while you have it apart. Good luck let me know!

Gear shift knob


Usually there is a small metal clip at the bottom front of the shift knob (looks like a staple.) Just pull it out and pull the knob straight up.

Removing Factory Gear Shift Knob for 2001 Jetta


On my 2000 jetta glx, I had to replace both the shift knob and boot as one. It is built as one unit. You have to pull the boot up over the shift knob, break/bend a clip to "unlock" the shift knob then pull up. I hope the new knob you got has the boot built in and comes with a new clip.
