Gear knob remove

Recommended Posts

calling Renntech Massive, just about to fit a short shift to a 6 GT3, the job all seems easy enough, all instructions make sense, except the very first item, removing the gear knob. Where is the 5 mm locking screw ?? after lifting the surround leather and exposing the lever there's no sign of a retaining screw anywhere, there is a plastic tube running down the lever where the leather stops for about 2 inches, it's not under there is it ?? would mean cutting that up, anyone help on this.

Cheers

If there is a no screw then you have a "pull-off" knob.

Twist and pull at the same time and be careful not hit the roof (or your face) when it comes off.

I replaced my stock shift knob with the GT3 RS alcantara version... Slipped back on fine but has a tendency to ride up and I'm always banging it back down.  any suggestions to hold it in position better?

 

Thanks...
