Final Edition Gear Knob Upgrade


Recommended Posts

All,

I ordered a final edition gear knob as an upgrade for my '99 Esprit. Now I must figure out how to remove the existing one. Does it unthread, pull off, or something much less obvious? Has anyone done this swap who would like to share their experience?

Thanks,

Doug

Look on the front of it, they'll be a small hole for an allen key :)

Still looking for assistance on this one folks. There's no setscrew or any other fastener holding the knob onto the shaft. I've taken the shaft out completely and I still can't figure out how the knob is attached. Has anyone removed the shift knob on a post '98 V8?

I finally figured it out. The knobs are pressed onto splines on the shaft. Pretty simple once you know how it goes together. I just used a large spanner as a fork and after a couple of whacks from a dead blow hammer it popped right off.

On that note, does anyone know where I can get a leather gear shift cover for the aluminum ball?

thanks!
