    I've read in a few instructions that to remove the SMG shift nob you just lift straight up. I've tried that and it doesn't budge. Am I just not trying hard enough? Is there a method besides using your hands? Thanks for any advice!

    If it is anything like the manual you need to pull pretty hard. BE CAREFUL though. I have smacked myself in the face before when removing mine.:eek:

    I smashed my thumb into the headliner when I removed my standard trans. shift knob :eek:

    Got it

    Thanks for the advice.....I decided to give it my all and got it off. I'm sure the bruise on my face will go away soon.:D
