The clip seems to be a use once and destroy during removal. I used a nylon tie and the home mechanics friend (duct tape) to fasten the new gaiter. Not perfect but quite usable and avoided a trip to the dealer.

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.

Need to remove window knob from 1979 monte carlo.


Getting to be an old vehicle now days. The mount that the window knob mounts on is usually a star type gear that the handle is pushed onto. There should be a very small hole in the round part of the handle that an allen set can slide into. Then loosened the hanle should pull off the star gear. Once the handle is removed the inside door panel should easily pull out over the gear.

Gear shifter will not go into park


There is a plastic actuator stick under the shift knob. Remove the "horse shoe" clip from the shift knob and remove knob by pulling strait up. You can twist it right and left a very small amount to loosen the knob, but not much.
Once you have the shift knob removed you will see the plastic actuator stick. Push down on the stick and put shift lever in park. If that works, the shift knob or stick is worn out.
Let me know.
Regard,

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.

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.
