6 speed shifter knob

I have a 2005 wrangler with the 6 speed manual trans. It seems that the shifter knob is being slowly turned clockwise and now the shift pattern is not straight. Does anyone out there have the same problem and if so did you figure a way to straighten that thing out.

take the cap off and tighten the nut on the inside.

yeah

Yeah I have the same problem with my 04' Wrangler. I think I'm just going to leave it the way it is. I'll probably break it trying to fix it.

look at the thread about aftermarket shift knobs it will tell you how to take the cap off and tighten the nut.

It isn't actually the shifter handle that is turning, it is the cap over the nut, which contains the shift pattern. Mine has done that, all you gotta do is press your palm as hard as you can on the shift pattern part to twist it back in place. At least, that was the case for me.

here is how i fix it.. you can try to turn it.. i just take the cap of and rotate it.

shuv in a screw driver like that and pull it out. (carefully otherwise you will scratch the rubber around the shift pattern piece)




Align it and put the screw driver on it like that and push it back in.

I am going to get a different handle some day, when I come across something I really like. Plus, it really doesn't bother me if the shift pattern is shifted. I memorized where all the gears are... ok not really, I have it tattooed on the top of my right hand...

Mine is completely upside down.
I don't really care though.
I know where the gears are :-)
