Missing the obvious on B&M


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

Really hope its not as obvious as i think it will be! Just got my B&M kit in the post and preped myself ready for fitting it. I bought the 9x6 werks DVD's to help me along so i thought i was all ready to go. I go to remove the shift but i don't have a set screw? In the instructions it mentions that some shifts don't have on and to use clamps on the lever collar, but all is perfectly round rubber collar which when i try and twist off doesn't budge.

Anyway got any idea's, i think i have the Tequipment leather shift knob. I am sure its gonna be pretty obvious but i don't want to mess it up!

Thanks

Only the aluminum/leather and CF/leather knobs have a set screw.

If there is no set screw then you have a twist off knob. Best to put the top down and pull harder. Be careful to not hit yourself it the face too.

Just pull directly up or twist as well? - really appreciate your help Loren

Thanks everyone for all the help - i think mine must have been Gorilla Glued on! Finally got it off by putting it into reverse then sitting in the passenger seat, bracing my feet against the floor and pulling like hell (didn't hit myself in the face either!!)

The B&M makes a hell of a difference - very pleased. On with the next mod.....

Thanks everyone, hope you all had a good thanksgiving.

Glad you werre able to remove it. I yanked on mine to the point where I thought it would never come off; I pictured the knob embedded in my forehead. The B&Ms are a wonderful addition to the car. Everytime I drive another Boxster or 996, I think this poor sucker doesn't know what they're missing.
