Only for 2008-2010 models. 2011 models are now equipped with a screw-on shift knob.


FINALLY!!!!

Our friend Phil (KRU) figured out how to remove our shift knobs... its a really easy process, and i am going to try whenever i am done posting this :D

here it goes...




I dont know for the manual trans.

The silver collar on the bottom of the shift knob is just clipped on, but very well. You pull straight dwn using a lil elbow grease

Posted Image

Once removed, there is a metal retainer sleeve that the Knob slide over and locks into place.
There will b 2 tabs that you will need to depress in order to slide knob up.

Posted Image

once you have the knob off, you will c how the metal sleeve locks into place. you can use pliers to turn the sleeve 90 degrees and pull up.


Final Results

It is a pain in the neck... i needed an extra person to do it... you need 2 sharp things to insert in the lil squares... while you are pressing hard those 2 tabs, someone else has to pull really hard up.... took a lil bit, but i got it out... keep us posted!

um pretty much any knob should work. Any with Allen Screws to hold it on will work with the CVT Shifter.
