being that my build date is June 07 it should be one that just pops off instead of screwing off right? do you pry off the bottem peice between the black shifter and that piece or does that little notch in the bottom of the chrome ring have anything to do with it?
im gonna assume you mean the shift knob. yes, it should pop off.
push the chrome ring down on the bottom of the shifter till it pops down, then simply pull up on the knob and it will come right off. note that if you attempting to install another shift knob, make sure its not threaded as there are no threads in this style of shifter and it will NOT hold. the shaft is smooth.
