shift knob

alright, theres prob a thread about this but can find it.
i got the skunk2 shift knob for my 93 prelude.
i was told the stock shift knob comes off by twisting it. it did not come off, instead the whole boot starting to twist with it.
basically the question is..how can i remove the stock shift knob, so i can replace it with the skunk2 shift knob?

thanks

Re: shift knob

just pull the boot off the knob. firmly pull it straight down right underneath the chrome trim on the knob.

Re: shift knob

Ok look at the shift knob, there is a trim that the shift boot is wrapped around pull down on that. Its going to be a pain in the @$$ to take off

Re: shift knob

what if you put the knob on w/o the nut?
none of my aftermarket knobs have ever had any sort of nut, they simply screw down in place.

Re: shift knob

aren't you supposed to back the nut up to the shift know, so the knob threads down one way, then the nut is ran up the shifter towards the knob, as a lock nut? S2000 have that kind of set up.

yeah thats what you're supposed to do, but the lock nut doesnt go down, it screws on for a couple threads and just stops.

Re: shift knob

does the shifter screw all the way down? if it does it sounds like the threads on the nut are stripped, just tap the threads.

Re: shift knob

Unless you bought it used theres no need to re-tap the threads on the locking nut, hell i bought mine used and i still didn't need to re-tap anything, heres the trick.


My 10 anni Sk2 knob locking nut did the same thing on my FM SS, it wouldn't thread on the shifter more than a couple of threads. I thought **** I'm screwed(pun), but out of desperation i just took a wrench and started forcing the locking nut down the threads of the shifter, and what do you know it worked like a charm. Now it will get hard to get the nut to thread down, and YOU WILL GET SCARED AND WANT TO STOP, but just keep on going man. You might even notice the nut sheering away some of the metal off the threads of the shifter like it did on mine, but don't worry its not doing any damage at all.

The boot was $23.00, and well the password shift boot is kind've stiff so it just stays up but this is what some people do with the stock boot:
