Everyone I have ever dealt with it just turns counter clockwise. Try using pliers but wrap a rag aroung it first so you dont scratch it.Omega SE20 said:ok i have a nice sphere shift knob i'd like to install. HOWEVER....how exactly do i get my old one off? i tried turning and pulling and turning and pulling really hard but i can't get it to budge. i feel a clip in the knob thats i guess holding it but how exactly do i remove it?
