Among the few minor dissappointments was the titanium plastic shift knob. I ordered the wood inset replacement. Does anyone know how to remove the old one?
Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,

Alive... usually they just unscrew. Just turn the shift knob counter clockwise. I know on most, they use a "locking" solution on the threads, so it takes alot of force to get it moving.

I might be wrong though. Has anyone removed the G's shift knob? I assume we're talking about the 6MT here.

Chaz, you are correct. The car's an AT. Since no one seems to know about it's removal, anyone have any suggestions about to whom to take it?

The dealer would have to know. Take to the service area and 'challenge' on of the techs to solve your mystery. They love stuff like that and you won't have to pay them anything!!!

OK - here's the scoop. The retaining ring at the bottom of the shift knob has to be removed and the retaining clip has to be removed for the shift knob to be separated from the shaft. Then the new knob can be installed.

Alive,

My G35 came with the factory wood package. I preferred the appearance without the wood. They brought out a small tool they used to just stick under the wood trim and popped off all the pieces and replaced them within about 10 minutes. I would definitly have the dealer do this.
