Shift Knob Removal

I think that I have read before that you have to pry off the gear pattern plug to get to the nut that holds the shift knob on, is this correct? I purchased a Monster Knob so the old knob needs to come off. Thanks, Scooby

On mine I can just unscrew it counterclockwise. If you have a nut in yours, try lifting ans unscrewing at the same time. This will keep tension on the nut and may allow you to unscrew it without taking the pattern off.

also use caution, the shifter can brake if you use lots of power on it, mine broke where the threads connect to the shaft it self thats the reason why i have a short shifter now.

and be careful not to tear up the rubber that wraps around the shift pattern coin, I tore mine up pretty good when doing my B&M STS, now I need to look into getting a different knob.

I have a 2002 TJ Sport, if the knob and the shift pattern coin are the same as what you need, you can have the one I will be removing, Iam going to install a Monster Knob. That will work for me as long as I like the Monster Knob, and the stock knob comes off ok. Scooby

use a heat gun to warm up the rubber around the shift pattern"coin" then just use a small flathead screwdriver to pry out the "coin". heating up the rubber helps from destorying it.
