    Gear Knob removal - Series 1 405

    All,

    The gear knob on my Mi16 is starting to break up a bit so I thought I would replace it with the good one I have here....easy job so I thought!

    I have pulled, poked, and twisted it but to no avail ! there has to be a way to get it off?

    It's the type with the lift up thing for reverse!

    Cheers

    Ben

    PS for all those with dirty minds...yeah yeah

    Do what you've been doing but pull a bit harder...it'll come off sooner or later.

    Seriously though, I tried and had the same problem...ended up getting the hacksaw roll_lau

    How did I manage to forget about that memorable post?

    I considered replacing my gearknob, but it is at the bottom of my to-do list at the moment.

    Hi, the gear nob on my Mi16 was broken in half, so i had to remove it to replace then new one.
    Method i used:
    I held the old Knob really tightly, pulled, yanked, swore, and it was finally detached from the stick..
    Wow, then put the new nob on, it wass a little stiff, so i hit it gently with a rubber mallet..

    How else do you explain it
    Good luck with your dilemma.

    It's glued on. Get a hairdryer, try to melt the glue and you might be able to pull it off. It's supposed to slide straight off, it's not threaded.

    I once had plans to put a different gearknob on my S1, but gave up because I couldn't get the old one off.
