I have not done this*, so don't take my word for it, but my '04 service manual shows the knob as being screwed on. It does have this caution:so anyone taken off their shift nob on a 02 to 04 frontier 5 speed? mine is getting worn out and is slippery. I tried unscrewing but to much tension and the shifter rod started to move. Is it glued on or just really on there?
