This instructable is how to change a gear shift knob the heavy duty way, but be able to change to a different gear shift knob or easily remove this one.
Step 1: Out With the Old
The first step is to remove the old shift knob. Once you find the thread pattern of the factory shifter buy 2 nuts that will fit on the shifter from your local hardware store. I used Ace Hardware. Put one nut on the shifter and tighten it all the way down for right now.
