good find thank you !!

I've read about removal of the older models auto shift knobs but not on a 13 or 14. i was planing on going with an aftermarket shift knob or something even crazy like a beer tap handle. ive seen it done on a few other vehicles shifters.

My 6 speed did not come off that easy, whatever you do, don't lean over it, or you will punch yourself when it comes off.
