If your talking about the shift knob then it most likely screws right on to the shift stick.

Yeah it doesn't seem to want to screw and some people are saying that you have to drop the bottom off and pull it off but I can't seem to pull it off and I was wondering if anybody had helpful pointers

Try the search feature. I know that this has been discussed before. I think JIMBOX had done it but had to destroy the knob to get it off. There is some kind of clip holding the darn thing on and very difficult to git it off.

Thanks I just found the search button and saw a few threads but in the end all of them said cut the knob or it just slides off and I was hoping not to cut it o well.
