Anyone know how to remove the PDK shift knob?

I am replacing the plastic trim with the leather one.

Thanks

I've seen the posts and diagrams regarding removal of the PDK shift knob. I see the locking collar below the knob and the picture which shows it being turned counterclockwise. Just wondering if anyone has done this and what tool or technique you used. I'm reluctant to apply any force to this thing without knowing what to expect. Any suggestions or tips from your experience would be appreciated!

We were able to do it by hand. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to get a good grip and gave it a fairly strong counter-clockwise twist. Forturnately, this one came loose with no problem. Then, we were able to pull the PDK knob straight out.

Getting a better grip on the slick collar was the key. Thanks!

I had a heck of a time trying to removing the locking collar. I ended up using one of those mini clamps from home depot. It did the trick. The one below is the large version. They make a really small version that's perfect. Maybe I'm just too weak. I make myself feel better by thinking it was the outside temp in the 90s. biggrin.gif
